The objective of this study was to identify crop production factor, associated with FHB development in Serbian wheat. FHB index and weight losses, varying from 16% to 74% and from 1.8% to 38.3%, respectively, indicated that enviromental conditions were the most important factor affecting disease development and yield losses. F. graminearum dominated on kernels (tip to 55.5%) and whole rachis (34.7%), while F poae was predominant on apical part od rachis (35.2%).
