A new threat has hit the wheat, barley, oats, cereal grains and corn sectors.
Fusarium head blight, or FHB, is a fungal disease that would affect development, reduce yield, and contaminate grain.
The problem is new in establishment, but risks are high, especially in Northwestern Alberta.
Mike Harding is a Crop Health Assurance Lead with Alberta Agriculture and Forestry.
Information on FHB can be found via links on the Government of Alberta’s Website.
