Scholten, Dr. Olga E.; Steenhuis-Broers, Greet; Osman, Aart and Bremer, Esther (2006) Screening for resistance to Fusarium head blight in spring wheat cultivars. Poster at: Joint Organic Congress, Odense, Denmark, May 30-31, 2006.
Fusarium fungi cause Fusarium head blight in wheat. This disease is a problem that occurs both in organic and conventional farming systems. As Fusarium fungi produce mycotoxins in wheat kernels they are a threat to human and animal health. Breeding for disease resistance is the only way to prevent or reduce the occurrence of the disease. The aim of the current research project is to identify different mechanisms of resistance in cultivars and breeding lines to be used in further breeding programmes.
