Fungicide applications for reducing FHB and DON

While scientists continually looks for ways to create better disease resistant crops, fungicide applications are considered as a potential solution for present problems such as fusarium head blight (FHB) and deoxynivalenol (DON) contamination.

Both Europe and the U.S. have set strict limits for mycotoxin limits including DON contamination in raw grain, which influences the export […]

Data from 19 years of trials examines fusarium head blight in wheat

As growing season approaches the issue of fusarium head blight (FHB) in wheat and what can be done to control it, cannot be overlooked. In a recent study, one pathologist and his team looked at nearly two decades of fungicide trials in an effort to find the best way to control the disease.

The findings […]
