Dr. Kemerait has identified Southern Corn Rust on 10 June and yesterday (17 June) in 3 fields in Terrell County.
Southern rust is STILL a serious threat to our corn production. Growers in our area should definitely be on alert. There has not been any Southern Corn Rust found in the sentinel plot in Bulloch County yet. Be prepared to protect your corn as we move forward and I will keep you updated with anymore finds and will continue to sample the plot weekly in Bulloch County.
