Economic cost of fusarium : farm-level and regional economic impact of fusarium in Alberta [2018]

Description

Fusarium graminearum imposes the greatest economic costs due to its much more aggressive nature resulting in yield and grade losses. The two main disease factors used in this assessment are the frequency and severity of the outbreak. This report provides an economic overview of the possible impact of FHB outbreaks at the farm-level and at regional/provincial levels. It is an overview since various assumptions are used in view of the complexity of disease and data limitations. This is an update of the 2015 report.
