SURVEY FOR FINAL YEAR DISSERTATION- the impact of Fusarium Head Blight with future predictions


Arable Farmer
As part of my final year at Bath University I am conducting a study to create an up to date model for the impact of Fusarium Head Blight in the UK with future climate predictions. A main focus of my study will be how the increasing area of maize being grown is likely to impact FHB occurrence.

My project is part of wider research lead by Neil Brown, focused on understanding Fusarium Head Blight in cereals, with the long-term goal of developing new ways to improve disease control.

I am gathering data on the impact FHB has on farmers & agronomists and have created a survey which I would be very grateful if you could complete please. If there are any other details you would like to add that may aid my project please get in touch ([email protected]). All results will be anonymous, and the survey should take no more than 10 minutes.

Please find the link for the survey below, this will be live for 2 weeks.

For farmers:
For agronomists:

Thank you very much for your time.

Kind Regards,

Anna Dunford

“However, the more comprehensive the data collected, the better the reflection on the daily realities of people from all sectors of agriculture and across all regions,” she adds. “We therefore want to hear from farmers, farm workers, contractors, spouses, adult-aged children and...
