Seeing damping off in corn?

06/15/2011 - 06/24/2011

A wetter-than-normal season in the Midwest is starting to be reflected in corn growth in southern Iowa, and, according to Iowa State University (ISU) plant pathologist Alison Robertson, “It seems to be getting worse.” 

 

Mark Carlton, Field Agronomist in Iowa’s southern counties, said that corn planted around May 15 is at the highest risk due to immediate rainfall, compared to seedlings that received four to five dry days first.
