Research on the pathogen components involved in Fusarium head blight (FHB) along with the effects of their interactions on disease development and mycotoxin accumulation is reviewed. The fungal components within the FHB complex differ significantly in different environments. Individual species may respond differently to, and be differentially influenced by, particular disease control measures. Almost all published co-inoculation studies on wheat spikes or grains show that competitive… CONTINUE READING
