The Differences Between Southern Rust and Common Rust

Southern rust has been sneaking its way north this season. Here are 5 things you need to know about southern rust, and what makes it different than common rust.

1.       Southern rust is potentially more destructive to corn yields—up to 25 bu. hits to yield can result. The latest-planted corn in an area is at higher risk for yield loss. Southern rust does not occur as often from year to year as common rust, but it is usually more severe when it does occur.  Southern rust is more frequent in the South but usually in late summer can spread into the Midwest by wind-blown spores.

2.       The biggest visual difference: the location of the pustules where the spores are produced. Common Rust: pustules occur on both the upper and lower leaf surfaces and will be circular to elongate, darker in color. They are slightly larger than those of southern rust.

Southern Rust: primarily on the upper on the upper leaf surface. Pustules are circular to oval, light brown to orange in color. Pustules are more densely clustered than common rust.

3.       Rust fungi only require 6 hours or more of the ideal humidity or leaf wetness for spore germination and infection. The ideal temperature for common rust and southern rust are different.

4.       Protective fungicide treatments will be key to slowing disease progress and protecting kernel yield. Consider applications carefully. Data from North Carolina suggests applying fungicide for control of rust within two weeks of black layer is unlikely to provide economic returns.  To be profitable, fungicide applications must be made in a timely manner before rust has spread throughout the canopy, and before corn plants are near physiological maturity.

5.       Stalk rots often follow leaf diseases. As you scout for rust this season, make note where in the field you need to monitor for stalk strength.

If you are unsure of the diagnosis of the diseases, send samples to a diagnostic lab. The shapes of spores must be compared across at least 100 spores to determine a final diagnosis.

Treatment guidelines: Scout for fungal leaf diseases 2 weeks before tasseling to 2 weeks after tasseling. At least a 15% whole-plant infection is needed to justify a fungicide treatment.

Factors to consider:

·         Weather. Fungi in general and rusts in particular need free water (on the leaves) and continued wet weather to continue to flourish.

·         Probability of more disease. Consider the probability of other fungal leaf blights developing under this season’s conditions and in your particular hybrid. For example, field history and amount of residue will affect probability of diseases such as gray leaf spot.

·         Economics. Consider the ROI on the application--the price of corn and the cost of application.

PHILADELPHIA -- The Phillies oakland athletics jersers have stepped up their detroit tigers jersers managerial search.
On Wednesday, sources said the Phillies are interviewing three internal candidates this week.
Juan atlanta braves jersers Samuel interviewed Tuesday, Jorge Velandia interviewed Wednesday and Dusty Wathan will interview before the weekend.
The Phillies are baltimore orioles jersers expected to begin meeting with external candidates next week.
Samuel, 56, has been a Phillies coach since 2011, including serving as third-base coach minnesota twins jersers since '16.
He is highly regarded and served as interim manager of the Orioles for 51 games in 2010.wholesale baseball jersers
Velandia, 42, is a special assistant to Phillies general manager Matt Klentak.
He fits the mold of the young, energetic, analytically-inclined candidate the Phillies seem to be seeking.
Wathan, 44, is the Triple-A new york mets jersers Lehigh atlanta braves jersers Valley manager.
He is a rising star based on how he has kansas city royals jersers developed most of the team's talented young players and prospects.
It is unclear if the Phillies have finalized their list of external candidates, but names like former pittsburgh pirates jersers Tigers manager Brad Ausmus, Red Sox bench coach Gary DiScarcina, Astros bench cincinnati reds jersers coach Alex Cora, former Mariners bench coach Tim Bogar, former catcher David Ross and White Sox bench coach Joe McEwing miami marlins jersers have been discussed.
Certainly there are many others.
Orioles manager Buck Showalter remains the biggest name connected to the Phillies' arizona diamondbacks jersers managerial opening because of his history with Phillies president Andy MacPhail and Klentak, but sources said there is no chance of Showalter coming to Philadelphia.
Showalter is under contract through 2018, and there is no hope Orioles owner Peter Angelos will let him out of his deal.
Former Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr.
and former bench coach Larry Bowa also are not candidates.
While Amaro is regarded as a managerial candidate, he doesn't make sense pittsburgh pirates jersers for the Phillies.
Bowa is expected to remain in the organization, but not as a member of the big league coaching staff.
The Phillies have had no shortage of suitors since they announced on the final weekend of the season that former manager Pete Mackanin has been reassigned to a front-office role.
Most in the industry see the Phillies as an organization on the rise with talented, up-and-coming players on the big league roster, a deep farm system and an owner that is ready to spend millions to fill the holes they cannot fill internally.
MacPhail said last week that he hopes the Phillies find their manager before the GM meetings, which begin Nov.
13.But it is not out of the question the Phillies can find their man before the end of the month.
Todd Zolecki has covered the Phillies since 2003, and for since 2009.
