Extension service personnel throughout 25 states provide information for the web-based Wheat Fusarium Head Blight Prediction System.
Now they need to know if it works for growers.
"This multi-state effort requires considerable resources to maintain, and scientists involved in the project would like to gather some input to justify continued investment of time, computing resources and funds needed to sustain the effort," University of Kentucky Extension pathologist Don Hershman says. "If you viewed or used these tools during the 2009 - 2010 growing season, we would like to hear from you. Please take a few minutes to complete a very brief on-line survey that will help us evaluate, improve, and maintain the system."
