"That way we can confirm it, document it and put it on the map to alert other people.". "The big concern about southern rust is it is an aggressive fungus," explained Jackson-Ziems. It can be confused with grey leaf spot and common rust; therefore, a laboratory test is often needed to confirm bacterial leaf streak.Â, Triazole and strobilurin fungicides are labeled for corn to help manage foliar fungal diseases.

Both diseases were lurking the lower canopy of a cornfield Kleczewski was scouting in northwest Illinois, as he talked to DTN. Disease has been observed when scouting. Oval- or spindle-shaped lesions develop that are brown with very-dark-brown or purple margins. Lesions can coalesce and create larger areas of dead tissue and leaves may die. Consult individual product labels for harvest interval and other restrictions for use.Â, In most cases, fungicides should be applied at or after tasseling. For example, a fungicide has been shown to be most effective for northern corn leaf blight and grey leaf spot when applied two weeks prior to tasseling to two weeks after tasseling.13. Remember that unlike bird or insect droppings, the small black tar spot lesions will not scrape off, said Kleczewski, who has examined many a poop-specked corn leaf in his hunting. Grey leaf spot (GLS) is a foliar fungal disease that affects maize, also known as corn.GLS is considered one of the most significant yield-limiting diseases of corn worldwide. 2016. Pustules can form on the upper and lower leaf surfaces. As with all plant diseases, all three points of the disease triangle need to occur for disease to ensue, a susceptible host plant, the pathogen, and favorable environmental conditions. Lesions may have a grey, downy appearance on the underside of leaves where the fungus sporulates. 1Additional fungicides are labeled for disease on corn, including contact fungicides such as chlorothalonil.
