Bacterial Diseases Found in Corn

After Day 1 of the PRO FARMER crop tour it was noted that some fields had significant disease pressure and given the current moisture conditions, it is anticipated that the diseases will continue to spread. This could spell stalk quality problems at harvest if not treated plus lighter test weight.

Two bacterial diseases were observed. These were Bacterial Leaf Streak and Goss’s Wilt. (Picture of Goss’s Wilt to the left) Fungal diseases present were Grey Leaf Spot and rust.

Fungicides will not have any activity on bacterial diseases. However, PROCIDIC is an effective tool in managing each of these bacterial diseases. It is best to apply it early to keep the disease from spreading. Give us a call to learn how PROCIDIC can be an effective tool in managing your diseases. [1]
