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.
