Fusarium Head Scab Research on Wheat at the Plant Pathology research farm.
Fusarium Head Scab research is conducted at the Plant Pathology research farm at Rock Springs. Small replicated plots using several cultivars are planted and inoculated with Fusarium. Samples taken throughout the season, help us to learn when and under what conditions mycotoxins develop in the developing grain.
Tim Grove shows how to secure the inoculation chambers to the ground stakes.
