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.
