J. J. Wiersma and H. J. Kandel

April 2004

Research

Fusarium head blight (FHB) can severely impact seed quality and limit availability of seed. In this experiment, FHB-infected seed lots were used to determine the effect of Vitavax Extra RTU and Dividend XL on initial plant population, grain yield, and quality. In these trials, an applications increased germination in laboratory tests but did not improve initial plant population, grain yield, or quality in the field compared to untreated seed.
