҂ CWAD varieties are generally more susceptible than CWRS varieties to fusarium head blight (FHB). Growing varieties with improved resistance is recommended to reduce infection and disease propagule productions as part of an integrated management strategy. Although no varieties are resistant, AC Brigade, Transcend and CDC Credence generally express lower FHB symptoms compared to other cultivars in the class.
