Corn Disease Profiles (EC3032)

EC3032

Extreme weather events are predicted to become increasingly common and could bring periods of more intense storms that include hail and high winds. Wounds created by severe weather events or insect feeding can favor disease development by providing infection points for pathogens. Seasonal timing when wounding events occur, as well as other factors such as temperature and moisture, impact which diseases develop. Listed below are descriptions of some common corn diseases favored by wounding, especially hail.
