Webcast to address management of northern corn leaf blight

Advertisement

Hybrid corn is an economically important crop, and it is susceptible to several foliar fungal diseases, including northern leaf blight. Growers and consultants can improve their knowledge and understanding of NCLB through the latest Focus on Corn presentation, authored by Sally Mallowa, graduate student and corn disease expert at Iowa State University.

Mallowa's talk covers:

--The conditions favorable for disease development;

--The disease cycle;

--Available management options; and

--Spray timing.

This talk is one of several presentations discussing foliar diseases of corn and fungicide recommendations for their management. The research in this presentation was funded through a USDA-NIFA grant on corn diseases. Through links and attachments embedded in the webcast player, this presentation leads viewers to other important resources funded through this grant, including:

--A two-page brochure titled "Foliar Fungicides for Corn: Targeting Disease";

--A 26-page booklet titled "Corn Foliar Diseases: Identification and Management Field Guide";

--Online crop management newsletters from the University of Illinois, Iowa State University, the University of Wisconsin, and The Ohio State University; and

--Various university-based crop management blogs.

This presentation is open access through Dec. 31 and can be viewed at http://www.plantmanagementnetwork.org/edcenter/seminars/corn/NorthernCornLeafBlight. Other Focus on Corn presentations can be viewed at http://www.plantmanagementnetwork.org/foc. Focus on Corn is a publication of the Plant Management Network, a nonprofit online publisher whose mission is to enhance the health, management, and production of agricultural and horticultural crops.

PMN achieves this mission through applied, science-based resources. PMN is jointly managed by the American Phytopathological Society, American Society of Agronomy, and Crop Science Society of America.
