Fusarium Head Blight Risk Update (07/09/20)

Both the national model and NDSU model have a moderate to high level of scab risk for susceptible varieties across a large portion of the state (Figure 1).

Both the national model and NDSU model have a moderate to high level of scab risk for susceptible varieties across a large portion of the state (Figure 1). Scab risk for moderately susceptible varieties is moderate to high for areas on the eastern quarter of the state and for small pockets in northwest ND (Figure 2). Conversations with growers, agronomists and consultants suggest there is a wide range of crop stages in the state, so continue to monitor growth stages in the fields and apply a fungicide if warranted.
