PLEASE NOTE: This information is provided for reference purposes, to be used as a general guide to assist growers in their fusarium management strategies. We recommend you search maps by your estimated full head emergence date for the most accurate risk assessment. See below the maps for several resources to help determine timing around fusarium management.

FHB risk maps for winter and spring wheat will be different from each other. The model, weather parameters and methodology used to calculate the probability of FHB occurrence are variable depending on the crop and are the reason why the FHB risk map forecast will be specific for the type of wheat seeded. Please refer to the map that fits your type of crop.

2018 Guide to Crop Protection


Please click on the image to open a PDF copy.
The Guide to Crop Protection, produced by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture, provides information on the use of herbicides, fungicides and insecticides for control of weeds, plant diseases and insects. This publication is only a guide. Always refer to the product label for application details and precautions.





To help keep marketing options open and maximize return on investment, Cereals Canada recommends growers use practices such as applying a fungicide when there is an elevated FHB risk to manage the disease and to reduce the presence of FHB on seed. It is important to only apply fungicides registered for the crop and to apply according to the instructions on the label.
