If this board is already to your finished dimensions then all of the above advice is good.

If it is still oversized, or rough cut, you can rip the board at the area of the check, joint it and then reglue it back together. The grain will match nicely with no fillers and no more check.

You would need to be careful to use a splitter, or riving knife when you rip this board since the check indicates internal stresses during the drying of this board.
