End date

Objective
Recent localized epidemics have necessitated finding fungicides that are effective against FHB. Scab development depends on host genetics, favorable environmental conditions from anthesis through kernel development, and the ability of the causal fungus to survive and spread. Immediate options are needed to keep this disease from causing severe economic loss to farmers. The requirement for efficacy reports for use of biofungicides is increasing in wheat producing areas.
