Southern corn rust has been confirmed in a sample from Otoe County in southeast Nebraska by a diagnostic laboratory at DuPont Pioneer.
Much of Indiana has experienced mild and humid weather over the past few weeks, which has influenced disease development. Gray leaf spot levels have been at low to moderate levels in most areas, but northern corn leaf blight has developed rapidly across Indiana.
Northern corn leaf blight (NCLB) has been reported in numerous fields across the U.S. Corn Belt. If the disease isn’t controlled, it will continue to spread and decrease corn crop yields.

The Export Sales report discouraged corn traders. The USDA report indicated a disappointing total for old crop corn sales, although the new crop total easily topped forecasts. The former apparently grabbed the attention of traders, as indicated by subsequent CBOT weakness. Superlative growing conditions are encouraging bears. September corn dropped 4.75 cents to $3.57/bushel in late Thursday trading, while December lost 4.5 cents to $3.67.
