Abstract:

Fusarium head blight (FHB) of wheat causes quantitative and qualitative reduction in yield.
Cultivar resistance is the most effective method of managing the disease. This study
evaluated the resistance of wheat germplasm currently available in Kenya to Fusarium head
blight and deoxynivalenol (DON) contamination. Nine wheat varieties and four CIMMYT
lines were evaluated for susceptibility to FHB under two diverse agro-ecologies in Nakuru
