ABSTRACT A meta-analysis of the effect of tebuconazole (e.g., Folicur 3.6F) on Fusarium head blight and deoxynivalenol (DON) content of wheat grain was performed using data collected from uniform fungicide trials (UFTs) conducted at multiple locations across U.S. wheat-growing regions. Response ratios (mean disease and DON levels from tebuconazole-treated(More)
The effects of propiconazole, prothioconazole, tebuconazole, metconazole, and prothioconazole+tebuconazole (as a tank mix or a formulated premix) on the control of Fusarium head blight index (IND; field or plot-level disease severity) and deoxynivalenol (DON) in wheat were determined. A multivariate random-effects meta-analytical model was fitted to the(More)
Several microbial strains belonging to different taxa, isolated from various parts of the world, have been shown to have the ability to antagonize Fusarium graminearum to different extents under various conditions. Some of these microbial strains are being developed as biological control agents (BCAs) for control of FHB. Different BCAs have different(More)
A general purpose fluid flow solver, caffa3d.MBRi, is presented which features a block structured framework to accommodate both a flexible approach to geometry representation and a straightforward implementation of parallel capabilities through the MPI library. Representation of complex geometries can be handled semi automatically through a combination of(More)
A general purpose incompressible flow solver, called caffa3d.MBRi, is presented which features a block structured framework to accommodate both a flexible approach to geometry representation and a straightforward implementation of parallel capabilities through the MPI library.

Selected strains of Bacillus can be used as biocontrol agents (BCAs), to antagonize Fusarium graminearum which causes Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) of wheat and barley. The ability of the BCA strain 1BA to survive during storage at different temperatures was examined. Cells of strain 1BA grown for five days at 27 o C in tryptic soy broth were stored at either(More)
