Project summary Since 2001 there has been an increase in fusarium head blight (FHB)

caused by Fusarium graminearum and a corresponding increase in the

concentration of mycotoxins produced by this species, namely

deoxynivalenol (DON) and zearalenone (ZON) within wheat grain.

European legislative limits for these mycotoxins were introduced in

2006 for cereals and cereal products intended for human

consumption. Legislative limits for fusarium mycotoxins HT-2 and T-2

are currently under discussion within the European Commission.

The current project investigated Fusarium development in the growing

season and the mycotoxin content of harvested grain at harvest.

Mycotoxin content in harvested grain was modelled against

meteorological data to provide a greater understanding of the

important parameters involved and to provide models to predict

mycotoxin content (DON and ZON) of harvested wheat at national,

regional and farm scale based on agronomic and meteorological data.

The extension to this project will allow the continued monitoring of

fusarium mycotoxins over the next two harvest and a validation of the

mycotoxin risk model that has been developed over two different

seasons and from archive data from 2001-2005 collected from a

previous project.

In addition, data will be used to advise the cereal industry of the

seasonal risk of fusarium mycotoxins where legislation already exists

(DON and ZON) and the potential risk for fusarium mycotoxins where

discussion limits exist, and legislative limits may be introduced during

the period of the proposed extension (HT-2 and T-2).

Project summary

Fusarium head blight (FHB) is a destructive disease of wheat generally

caused during warm and wet weather at and after anthesis follows by

more rainy days and high precipitation before harvesting. The disease

results in mycotoxin contamination of grain and leads to the significant

qualitative and quantitative losses. Fusarium mycotoxins are toxic

secondary metabolites produced by Fusarium spp. During infection of

small grain cereals such as wheat.

Project summary

The anchorage of free standing crops depends upon the mechanical

properties of the rigid basal roots together with the shear strength of

the soil. A plant’s ability to develop a strong anchorage system will

depend upon the amount of rainfall during the growing season, which

affects the shear strength of the soil during development. The

anchorage strength of a cereal crop is important as varieties’ lodging

susceptibility is related to it. Improving anchorage strength, therefore,

either by improving the anchorage root system or by increasing the

shear strength of the soil will improve lodging resistance. Whilst the

properties of the plant and the conditions which cause lodging are well

researched, little attention has been made directly to investigate how

anchorage can be improved by enhancing the soil physical properties

of the top 10cm of the soil which contributes to anchorage strength.

Project summary

To investigate the mechanism of PMAA formation and to regulate the

PMAA activity by altered hormonal response (ABA &GA) in developing

grains

Objectives:

To determine the endogenous levels of ABA & GA in developing grain

at different time courses in cold shock and control wheat plants

Application of exogenous hormones to cold shock and control wheat

plants to study their effect on PMAA production

To determine the response of developing grains to altered

hormone(ABA & GA) conc.
