Andy Hines will set the stage for Centennial Meeting attendees to focus on the next 100 years of cereal grain science when he presents a scientific session on "Foresight & Innovation: Using the Future to Innovate Today." Join Hines and your colleagues at the Centennial Meeting in Minneapolis to explore how the future can stimulate innovation in the present.
Fusarium head blight, also known as scab, is a serious disease of cereals. Infection leads to reduced grain yields, poor seed quality and pathogen-produced toxins, including deoxynivalenol (DON). Tekle and colleagues examined the use of hyperspectral imaging (HSI) to detect DON in individual oat kernels. HSI was found to successfully detect fusarium damage and provided a better indication of DON content of kernels as compared to visual examination. Therefore HSI was demonstrated to hold potential in identifying fusarium infected kernels, and reduce DON levels in grain lots of oat.
