Watch for corn molds, diseases

Agriculture.com Staff 10/29/2009 @ 8:35am

Wet conditions have caused many delays in harvest this year. Because of this producers need to be scouting their fields looking for grain molds and ear rots. Tamra Jackson, plant pathologist, and Amy Ziems, director of Plant, Pest and Diagnostic Clinic, both at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln suggest drying grain prior to storage as a way to slow down the growth of diseases.
