FHB Update from US, 04/25/18

Welcome to the Fusarium head blight prediction center. This site provides daily estimates of disease risk for many of the areas of the US where head blight is a problem. The current focus of the prediction effort is on AR, MO, TN, KY and NC. Wheat in these states are at growth stages that are most vulnerable to Fusarium infection or will likely reach these stages in the next 7 -10 days. The current risk maps indicate a low risk of disease because of dry weather in early April. The risk may increase over the next week as rain moves through some areas of the central US.
