Southern Corn Rust Confirmed in Wayne County

Southern corn rust was confirmed yesterday (June 1) in Wayne County on early planted corn at R3/R4 growth stage. 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.
