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.
Weather conditions are favorable for several different ear rots of corn in Indiana this year. As harvest begins, it is important to identify fields that may have ear rots to ensure timely harvest and proper storage of moldy grain.

Ethanol news likely undercut corn futures Wednesday. The weekly EIA report on the energy sector stated domestic ethanol stocks at an 18-month high, thereby implying diminished corn demand from that sector. That won’t help the grain industry with another massive harvest looming. December corn futures dipped 2.0 cents to $3.4175/bushel in late Wednesday trading, while May sagged 1.75 to $3.625.
