FHB Resistance - R=Resistant, MR=Moderate Resistant, MS=Moderate Susceptible, S=Susceptible, Rating - 0-100 where 0 indicates no symptoms (highly resistant) and 100 indicates complete head coverage (highly susceptible)

* Please Note: The USWBSI recommends the planting of Moderate Resistant (MR) varieties, public or private, as an effective way to help manage FHB. Varieties with a rating of MR or better for FHB were determined through official state variety trials and/or recommendations from each state’s public small grain specialists.
