Corn stalk rots taking a biteIntegrated Crop Management News
AbstractDuring the past 2 weeks, the appearance of many cornfields has begun to deteriorate, and many plants are now dead. I have inspected several fields in western and southern Iowa and found that stalk rots are common in fields with prematurely dead plants. With early planting this year, we expect the crop to be ahead of the normal maturity schedule, but it's clear that many plants are dying prematurely, in response to a combination of dry late-season conditions and stalk rots.
