Nothing Replaces Boots in the Field

Alberta Agriculture and Forestry’s, Pathology Program at Brooks, is once again looking for growers of winter wheat, 2-row barley and durum to participate in a Fusarium head blight project for the 2020 growing season.  This project is a collaboration between the University of Manitoba and the agriculture ministries of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, which aims to develop a disease prediction model, specific to individual cereal crops grown on the Canadian Prairies.  Growers will be asked to set aside a small area to remain unsprayed with fungicides at anthesis and to allow access to a student technician on three occasions to rate the crop for disease and collect a small harvest sample.

Interested? Please contact Greg Daniels ( or Tijmen Jonker ( for more details.
