aVarieties showing a ratings range are based on initial data. With further testing, a single numerical rating will be assigned.
FHB Resistance - MR=Moderate Resistant, MS=Moderate Susceptible, S=Susceptible, FHB Rating - 1-9 with 1 indicating no symptoms (highly resistant) and 9 being fully blighted heads (highly susceptible). Values are based on an index of FHB and DON.
* 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.
