Fusarium head blight (FHB, syn. scab) is one of the most severe wheat diseases worldwide. The disease is caused mainly by fungi of the genus Fusarium. Warm and humid weather conditions at the flowering stage are conducive to disease development. Symptoms may occur over the entire head or on just a few spikelets (Figure 1A), which leads to the formation of Fusarium-damaged kernels (FDK) that are shriveled and appear chalky white and/or pink (Figure 1B). Diseased kernels can contain high amounts of mycotoxins, which pose a significant risk to food and feed safety. View the paper here.
