Southern Corn Rust was confirmed in Jeff Davis County yesterday (June 9). Growers in our area should be on alert. There has not been any Southern Corn Rust found in the sentinel plot in Bulloch County, but if the weather pattern continues to be wet and humid we are definitely at risk. Be prepared to protect your corn as we move forward and I will keep you updated with anymore finds.
Please view fungicides listed below in the 2021 GA Pest Management Handbook that are labeled for managing Southern Corn Rust.
