The 2020 National Fusarium Head Blight management session, Dec 9

The 2020 National Fusarium Head Blight Forum will be a virtual event December 7‐11, 2020.

The USWBSI’s mission is: to enhance food safety and supply by reducing the impact of Fusarium Head Blight on wheat and barley. It does so by funding critical research by state university and USDA‐ARS scientists, and by communicating results to the entire wheat and barley community.
