With most of us being in the pollination stage for our corn crop, we wanted to update everyone on a few things to be on the lookout for and what we are hearing from other growers.
Is it worth checking on your fields one more time for disease? Taking into consideration what we are seeing and hearing, we believe it is. Conditions have been right for many of our diseases, especially Gray Leaf Spot. The high heat and humidity we have been experiencing, keeping the leaves of the corn plant wet until late in the mornings, can allow the disease to develop and spread rapidly.
