FHB Update from US, 07/31/18

Much of the US wheat crop should be beyond the growth stages that are most vulnerable to Fusarium head blight. The moderate gray color of the map suggests that the crop is already mature and being harvested in much of the country. Growers in the far northern regions of ND and MN may have some late maturing fields to monitor. Therefore, the risk tool will continue to run until approximately Aug 15th.
