Program Description

The FHB Management (MGMT) research area supports research to develop effective and economical disease management practices that reduce FHB severity and mycotoxins in small grain crops to meet the immediate and long-term needs of the wheat and barley industries. This research area involves: tillage practices, crop sequences, and other cultural practices targeting Fusarium-infested residues; fungicides and biocontrol agents with demonstrated field efficacy, and their application technologies; the refinement and deployment of disease prediction and forecasting models, and disease management decision tools; and studies of pathogen survival, inoculum production, dispersal, infection, colonization, mycotoxin production, fungicide sensitivity, and factors accounting for unacceptable levels of mycotoxins in symptomatic or asymptomatic grain. See the FHB Management section of the USWBSI Action Plan for research goals and needs.
