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.
NOTE: Priority will be given to multi-PI, collaborative, integrated pre-proposals that address the research priorities listed below. Project pre-proposals pertaining to integrated management (IM) studies will be developed as a multi-PI, collaborative, integrated proposal. The coordinator for the Integrated Management Coordinated Project (IM-CP) is listed below the FY20-21 Research Priorities.
- Develop integrated management strategies for FHB and mycotoxins that are robust to conditions experienced in production fields of wheat and barley.
- Help develop and validate the next generation of management and mitigation tools for FHB and mycotoxin control.
- Develop a full understanding of the factors influencing infection and toxin accumulation that can be used to develop the next generation of FHB and DON risk assessment measures.
- Enhance communication and end user education/outreach.
