Keep Fusarium Head Blight from Damaging Wheat Quality
Fusarium head blight in wheat
If your wheat fields have been infected with Fusarium head blight (head scab) before, you’re well aware of the potential yield losses and crop damage it causes. Causing shriveled kernels with lighter test weights, it’s no surprise it’s considered the most economically important wheat disease in the U.S. by the Crop Protection Network. Additionally, infected wheat can have increased vomitoxin or DON levels, which can lead to dockage after harvest, putting your ROI potential at risk.
We know disease severity can vary year-to-year, but areas of ND and MN did experience moderate to high risk for head scab infection last year, according to the U.S. Wheat and Barely Scab Initiative. To help you get a head start this season, we recommend taking proactive measures with Miravis® Ace fungicide.
To learn how it could benefit your operation, watch Agronomy Service Representative Jason Snell share how Miravis Ace provides best-in-class head scab control and a flexible application window for enhanced crop quality and higher potential profit.
