NCLB 2015

Posted by romeethredge on May 14, 2015

We are finding some Northern Corn leaf Blight (NCLB) in field corn now at low levels. I had not found any until today, myself but crop consultant, Jim Griffin sent me some this photo yesterday of some he found in Baker county. Some of the lesions we are seeing may be Northern Corn Leaf spot which isn’t a big problem, but there is some NCLB at low levels in some fields.

He said it was in tall corn with a close rotation, every other year corn, not quite to tassel stage.

I found some at low levels in tasseling corn in Seminole county today.  I also saw some stinkbugs in corn at low levels. There are more of them near small grains fields that are drying down.
