FHB Update from US, 09/05/17

The wheat growing season is over in most areas of the country and the Fusarium prediction center is no longer actively generating new risk maps. The risk maps from 2017 will remain available until the system resumes activity next February. To access these risk maps, select the assessment dates of interest from the calendar interface to the left of the risk maps. Thanks for a great season. We hope you will join us again in 2018.

The focus of the Fusarium prediction center remains on the northern spring wheat production regions of ND, and MN. The risk models are indicating moderate to high risk for the northern areas of these states. Some late planted fields may still be at flowering stages that are most vulnerable for infection. Growers should in these areas should work with local extension specialists to evaluate the risk in their area.

FHB Update from US, 04/05/17

Welcome to the Fusarium Head Blight Prediction Center. The current focus of the prediction models is on the Mid. South where the wheat is approaching or already at the flowering growth stages that are most vulnerable to Fusarium infection. Growers in this area should check with their local extension specialists or crop consultants for additional evaluations of disease risk. The risk tool also indicates a high level of risk for much of KS, MO, IL, IN and parts of OH. Fortunately, the wheat in most of these areas is not at vulnerable growth stages yet and the risk of disease is lower than currently suggested by the model.
