Episode 2: Scourge of Barley Quality and Yield: Managing Fusarium Head Blight – with Dr. Kelly Turkington (AAFC)
We chat with Dr. Kelly Turkington from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) at the Lacombe Research and Development Centre about barley specific Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) disease management. Our discussion covered a lot, ranging from ideal FHB fungicide timing to Kelly’s current research project exploring combinations of management practices. We strayed to discussing fungicide application at herbicide timing and evaluating varieties for disease resistance ratings.
