If you are interested in receiving real-time alerts for Fusarium head blight updates or field reports, the U.S. Wheat & Barley Scab Initiative is offering a free subscription service in 2010. To sign up for these alerts, please click here. The alerts are a summary of commentary made by wheat disease specialists throughout the country as part of the Fusarium Head Blight Prediction Center. You can receive alerts in email and/or text message form. You can also sign up for different types of reports, whether just a national summary or specific regions. For example, if you just want to see a summary from Wisconsin and the corresponding soft winter wheat region, you should mark the “Mid West/Northern Region, Soft Winter Wheat”.
If you have any questions about this service, please free to contact me.
