  • Producers needed for FHB risk assessment project

    The University of Manitoba is leading a fusarium head blight (FHB) risk assessment project across the three prairie provinces. The major goal of this project is to develop a standardized, weather-based method for reliably predicting FHB and mycotoxin (DON) accumulation across all three prairie provinces.
