Fusarium crown rot foot rot

Fusarium crown rot(foot rot)

  • Caused by Fusarium spp.

    • Same fungus that causes scab

  • Hosts include wheat, barley, oats, corn, grasses


Fusarium crown rot history

Fusarium crown rot history

  • Ubiquitous; probably present in the original prairie soil infecting native grasses

  • Early 1900s H.L. Bolley “wheat-sick soil”

    • Campaign across ND to use good seed and practice rotation

    • Posters in store windows


Yield loss from fusarium crown rot

Yield loss from Fusarium crown rot

  • Long-term annual estimates of yield loss in Saskatchewan and Manitoba

    • 5-6% spring wheat

    • 11% barley

  • North Dakota estimates were similar, 9.5% yield loss for durham


Fusarium crown rot trials huntley 2005

Fusarium crown rot trialsHuntley, 2005

**An outlier was removed. If included, % yield reduction would be 11.7%

**An outlier was removed. If included, % yield reduction would be 11.7%


Future fusarium crown rot control

Future: Fusarium crown rot control

  • Seed treatment

  • Late seeding

  • Don’t over-fertilize

  • Crop rotation to non-host: DON’T PLANT CORN!!!

  • Plant tolerant varieties
