LEARN ABOUT SCAB: A two-hour session on fusarium head blight management will be online from 2 to 4 p.m. Dec. 9.
Four researchers will talk about wheat fusarium head blight at Dec. 9 online forum.

Each December, researchers, educators and growers gather to talk about the latest information on the fight against fusarium head blight, or scab, and the toxins it generates in wheat and barley.

This year the National Fusarium Head Blight Forum is online, so you have the chance to join the event without the cross-country travel.

Registration for the whole conference is free. Producers and consultants can earn certified crop adviser credits with an FHB management session from 2 to 4 p.m. Dec. 9. Two credits in the Integrated Pest Management category  are available for talks delivered by Extension pathologists from across the country.

The session will feature four speakers:

  • “Influence of application equipment on deposition of fungicides in wheat canopy,”
  • Erdal Ozkan of Ohio State University
  • “Fungicide and integrated management of head scab and vomitoxin in wheat with emphasis on miravis ace,” Pierce Paul of Ohio State University
  • “A seven-year review of fungicide and integrated management trials in spring barley,” Andrew Friskop of North Dakota State University
  • “Local malting barley for Northeast craft beverage markets: What’s FHB got to do with it?” Gary Bergstrom of Cornell University
