Management of Fusarium Head Blight with Fungicides Webinar Part 2

An American Society of Agronomy webinar sponsored by sponsored by the U.S. Wheat and Barley Scab Initiative.

Date:  Monday, February 18, 2019

Time:  12:00 Noon - 1:00 PM Eastern/11:00 AM - 12:00 Noon Central/10:00 - 11:00 AM Mountain/9:00 - 10:00 AM Pacific

Fusarium head blight (i.e., scab), caused by the fungus Fusarium graminearum, is one of the most destructive diseases of wheat in the U.S. This webinar will discuss strategies for managing this disease based on the use of fungicide applications. In addition to risk monitoring, fungicide active ingredient efficacies, fungicide application timing, and sprayer technologies will be discussed.

Speaker Information:
Dr. Pierce Paul
Professor and Extension Plant Pathologist
The Ohio State University

Dr. Pierce Paul is a Professor and Extension Plant Pathologist at The Ohio State University, with expertise in epidemiology, risk assessment, and integrated management of diseases of corn and small grain crops, primarily those caused by mycotoxigenic fungi. He is particularly interested in the use of statistical and computer models to describe plant disease dynamics in the field and to make disease management decisions based on risk assessment and economics. He currently researches various aspects of the epidemiology and integrated management of Fusarium head blight of wheat, Gibberella ear rot of corn, and associated mycotoxins such as deoxynivalenol and zearalenone. He has published extensively on the use of a statistical technique called meta-analysis to integrate and interpret results from integrated management trials and to evaluate the economic benefit of disease management programs in corn and wheat.
