About this session:
Our panel on fusarium will provide expertise on the disease. Kelly Turkington will share how fusarium spreads and develops in the crop. He will also touch on the development of toxins in Fusarium infected cereals and the impact on cereal production if this disease is left un-checked. Kelly will teach producers how they can contribute to preventing the spread by using some very basic management tools.
Brian Beres will speak about the management of the crop and how the timing of the management practices is critically important. He will share some of the details of how to use the growth stages of the cereal plant combined with temperature and moisture to best avoid the development of the disease, Fusarium Head Blight.
