Fusarium head blight study needs farmers

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Alberta Agriculture and Forestry’s pathology program at Brooks is again looking for growers of winter wheat, two-row barley and durum to participate in a fusarium head blight project for the 2020 growing season.

The project, which aims to develop a disease prediction model, is a collaboration between the University of Manitoba and the agriculture ministries of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

Participating growers will set aside a small area to remain unsprayed with fungicides at anthesis and to allow access to a student technician on three occasions.
