Head Scab

University of Kentucky - Fusarium Head Blight (Head Scab) Wheat Variety Research

Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) [Head Scab] is common in Kentucky and has the potential to dramatically impact grain quality and yield. The University of Kentucky Small Grain Variety Testing Program annually enters wheat varieties in the UK Fusarium Head Blight Nursery which evaluates the varietal response under field inoculated mist irrigated (high diseases pressure) conditions. The variety testing programs also records visual FHB field ratings when the pathogen is present.
