  • Fusarium poae is one of the Fusarium species commonly detected in wheat kernels affected by Fusarium Head Blight. Fusarium poae produces a wide range of mycotoxins including nivalenol (NIV). The effect of temperature on colony growth and NIV production was investigated in vitro at 5-40 °C with 5 °C intervals. When the data were fit to a Beta equation (R2 ≥ 0.97), the optimal temperature was estimated to be 24.7 °C for colony growth and 27.5 °C for NIV production. The effects of temperature on… CONTINUE READING
