- Environmental conditions have promoted early infections of foliar diseases in corn. Early Northern corn leaf blight infections to pre-tasseling corn may reduce yield potential if favorable conditions for the disease continue.
- Begin scouting fields prior to tasseling to assess disease severity.
- Fungicide applications may be warranted in fields with a history of disease, corn residue, and high disease severity.
