Fusarium Head Blight Risk (06/15/17)

Winter wheat is flowering or near flowering and some spring wheat fields are starting to head.

Fusarium Head Blight Risk

Winter wheat is flowering or near flowering and some spring wheat fields are starting to head. Currently, Fusarium head blight (FHB) risk is low for the entire state (Figures 2 and 3). Areas that have received frequent rain events in the past week and experienced several days of high humidity may see an increase in FHB risk in the upcoming days. Continue to monitor the growth stage in small grain fields, pay attention to weather forecasts and use the model to help assess FHB risk.
