About NBFS

Fusarium head blight is one of the most important diseases in small grain cereals. This plant disease, which is caused by fungal species within the genus Fusarium, may have a negative influence on yield and grain quality. Mycotoxins produced by Fusarium species, accumulate in grains and may cause adverse health problems when consumed by humans and animals.
