Soft Winter Wheat – Northern Region

The following links to individual states will bring you to information on variety response to Fusarium Head Blight (FHB=Scab) observed in that state, as well as provide information on yield, quality, and levels of resistance to other wheat diseases. As a class, SRWW varies considerably for resistance to FHB with some cultivars showing excellent levels of moderate resistance and other being very susceptible. Thus, a grower must carefully examine FHB rating from trials designed to assess FHB resistance when selecting a cultivar.
