FHB Update from US, 08/02/17

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.
