Fusarium Head Blight Predictor
May 23, 2018
Gary Bergstrom, Extension Plant Pathologist, Cornell University
This is a critical week for management of Fusarium head blight (FHB) in winter malting barley. Some winter barley fields in New York are fully headed now and many more will head out this later week. Even though we have had frequent rains, the Fusarium Risk Assessment Map (http://www.wheatscab.psu.edu/riskTool.html) shows mostly low risk of Fusarium infection in New York because temperatures have been considered too low for spore production in many areas. A moderate to high risk of FHB is indicated for areas of the Southern Tier, southern Hudson Valley, and Long Island. Maximal suppression of FHB and grain contamination by deoxynivalenol (DON) mycotoxin results when fully emerged heads of winter malting barley are sprayed with full label rates of Caramba or Prosaro fungicides. A heads emerged spray with these triazole fungicides also helps protect upper leaves against fungal leaf blotches, powdery mildew, and rust. Foliar sprays of Caramba or Prosaro up to seven days after head emergence may still result in significant FHB and DON suppression. Fungicide products containing strobilurins should not be applied to headed wheat or barley as they may result in increased levels of DON in grain.
Winter wheat is generally a week or more behind in development from winter barley planted on the same fall date. Winter wheat in New York varies from stem elongation to flag leaf visible stages. We should reach the critical fungicide application window for winter wheat over the next two weeks. The triazole products Caramba and Prosaro are the most effective fungicides for suppression of FHB and DON contamination when applied at flowering (emergence of anthers on heads). A flowering application of triazole fungicide should be based on Fusarium head blight (FHB) risk as well as the risks of powdery mildew, rusts, and fungal leaf blotches in the upper canopy based on scouting of individual fields. There is an application window of approximately 7 days from the beginning of flowering in which reasonable FHB suppression can be expected. Check the Fusarium Risk Assessment Tool (http://www.wheatscab.psu.edu/) and your local weather forecast frequently as your winter wheat crop approaches heading and flowering.
Schedule a Malt Sensory Tasting
Malt is the backbone of great craft beer and the best way to determine how any grain will perform in your recipe is to taste it as an infusion. We steep our grains to create a wort for you to sample, then build your brew around a particular flavor profile.
We hold malt sensory events at our malthouse periodically, or schedule an appointment and we'll come to you! Call Patty at 585.813.8399 or email
Flaked Grains Available December 2019
We currently have Finger Lakes Flaked
Corn; Flaked Barley, Oats, Rye coming soon!
"This flaked corn has high available extract, and converts easily (without cooking) to produce a clear wort which was light in color.
The pre-gelatinization from your steam treatment process is a big benefit for brewers or distillers, and should be marketed as such. These will perform well in a brewery or distillery."
