Disease Photos (2021)

As expected, I had a bunch of diseases this year. Two were new.

Eyespot. I don’t remember this one.
Common Rust. In the 10 years that I’ve grown corn here, it has never been this severe.
Grey Leaf Spot. I haven’t seen this much of it before.
Northern Leaf Spot. Hasn’t been this aggressive since 2014.
Northern Leaf Blight. Severe, as usual.
Severe leaf smut.

Southern Rust was present this year too, but I gotta find a quality photo of it.

One can see why growing corn here is often so difficult. Finding a variety or population that resists EVERYTHING is quite rare.
