FHB Update from US, 05/16/19

There is a large area of the Mid. West that is at moderate and high risk for Fusarium head blight. Local reports from this area indicate that wheat is at or approaching growth stages that are most vulnerable to disease in the central regions of KS, MO, IL, Southern IN and OH. Parts of MD and DE may also be at risk. Producers in these areas should monitor the weather conditions carefully and consult with local extension experts or consultants for more informaton. Fungicide applications may be needed to suppress disease in these areas. Selecting the state of interest from the menu to the left of the map will zoom to show more detail and display commentary from local disease specialists.

FHB Update from US, 05/07/19

There is a large area of the Mid.West that is at moderate and high risk for Fusarium head blight. Local reports from this area indicate that wheat is at or approaching growth stages that are most vulnerable to disease in southeastern KS, southern MO, Southern IL, and parts of KY. Producers in these areas should monitor the weather conditions carefully. Fungicide applications may be needed to suppress disease in these areas.

FHB Update from US, 05/03/19

Wheat in AR, Southern MO, TN, and Western KY is likely at or near the critical stages of growth. At this point, the forecasting model indicates that the risk of severe disease is low in most of these areas. The model currently indicates a large portion of IL, IN and OH are at a moderate or high risk of severe disease. Local reports from this area indicate that wheat in this area is not at flowering or early stages of grain fill growth stages that are most vulnerable to disease. Producers in these areas should monitor the weather conditions carefully. Fungicide applications may be needed to suppress disease if the risk remains high. Selecting the state of interest from the menu to the left of the map will zoom the map to show more detail and display commentary from local disease specialists.

FHB Update from US, 05/01/19

Wheat in AR, Southern MO, TN, and Western KY is likely at or near the critical stages of growth. At this point, the forecasting model indicates that the risk of severe disease is low in most of these areas. There is a region of southern AR that appears to be a moderate or high risk, however, wheat in this area is likely past the most vulnerable growth stages. Late maturing fields may still be at risk for problems.

FHB Update from US, 04/15/19

Wheat in AR, TN and NC should be approaching the critical stages of growth over the next 7 to 10 days. There may also be some areas of northern LA, MS and AL that are still at vulnerable growth stages. At this point, the risk of severe disease is low or moderate, in most of these areas. There is a region of southern MS, AL and GA that appears to be a moderate or high risk, however, wheat in this area is likely past the most vulnerable growth stages.

FHB Update from US, 04/10/19

The focus of the Fusarium Head Blight Prediction Center moves North this week. Wheat in AR, TN and NC should be approaching the critical stages of growth over the next 7 to 14 days. There may also be some areas of northern LA, MS and AL that are still at vulnerable growth stages. At this point, the risk of severe disease is low, in most of these areas. There is a region of southern LA and MS that appears to be a moderate or high risk, however, wheat in this area is likely past the most vulnerable growth stages.

FHB Update from US, 04/01/19

The Fusarium head blight prediction center resumed activity for the 2019 growing season this week. The southern states including LA, MS, AL and GA are the current focus of the prediction effort. Over the next few weeks, wheat in these states will likely reach the flowering and early stages of grain development that are most vulnerable to infection by the Fusarium fungus. The current risk of severe disease is low in the southern region of the US.

FHB Update from US, 09/12/18

Thanks for your interest in the Fusarium head blight prediction center. The wheat growing season has ended in most areas of the US and the Fusarium head blight prediction center will no longer be generating new risk maps. The maps for the 2018 growing season will be available for your review during the next few months. The system is scheduled to resume activity in February-March of 2019. We hope to see you then.
