Much of the 2014 Nebraska corn crop has experienced repeated and prolonged stress and wounding. While most of the crop looks good, we are beginning to see early evidence of problems developing.
Identifying plant diseases is often very difficult and requires practice and experience. Questions always come in about what rust is affecting corn and whether to utilize a fungicide.
Southern rust was recently found in Brookings County at very low incidence and severity, said Emmanuel Byamukama, SDSU Extension plant pathologist.

Crop futures firmed despite negative factors Wednesday. The surging U.S. grain harvest is building grain and soy supplies. Moreover, equity market tumbled and the U.S. dollar continued its upward march, both of which are seen as bearish demand indicators. Still, the crop markets held up surprisingly well today. That probably reflected suspicions that the markets are deeply oversold. December corn futures edged up 0.5 cent to $3.2125/bushel late Wednesday, while May added 0.75 to $3.4275.
