Prevention of Fusarium head blight infection and mycotoxins in wheat with cut-and-carry biofumigation and botanicals

The objective of this study was to assess prevention measures with potential to suppress F. graminearum and decrease mycotoxin contamination in wheat in a simulated maize-wheat rotation under notillage. Within this context, the effects of applying mulch layers or botanical extracts onto artificially inoculated maize residues with F. graminearum were investigated. We examined a cut-and-carry approach meaning that cover crops were cultivated in separate fields and transferred to the wheat crop in order to cover the maize residues.
