Objective

Project 1 - Integrated Management Strategies to Reduce FHB and DON in New York: Investigate the effects of variety resistance and fungicide application on FHB and DON accumulation in winter wheat.

Project 2 - Uniform Fungicide and Biological Trials in New York: The effect of promising fungicides and biological control agents on Fusarium head blight (FHB) and deoxynivalenol (DON) levels will be evaluated across multiple locations and small grain classes.

More information

Project 1: The design is a randomized complete block with a split-plot arrangement of cultivar as the whole plot and fungicide treatment as the sub-plot.

Project 2: A uniform fungicide and biological control experiment in New York will be conducted at the Cornell University Musgrave Research Farm in a field of soft red winter wheat Pioneer 25R39 (FHB susceptible) planted into untilled soybean residue. A second experiment will be conducted at the Musgrave Farm in a field of WintMalt winter malting barley planted into soybean residue.
