Corn Disease Profiles: Diseases Favored by Dry Conditions (EC1910)

EC1910

Extreme weather events are predicted to become increasingly common and could bring periods of drought, as well as intense rainfall events. Wet conditions are favorable for many plant pathogens and the development of diseases, but some diseases may also develop during or following dry weather. The timing during the season when dry conditions occur, as well as other factors, such as temperature, impact which diseases develop and when. The list below summarizes some of the most common corn diseases that can develop during dry conditions.
