NDSU Extension Cereal Pathologist Andrew Friskop is reviewing the results from a North Dakota corn disease survey. Based on the results, Goss’s Wilt and others are showing up in the crop. “Most of the fields were impacted by Goss’s Wilt late in the season and I don’t anticipate much yield loss. There were a few fields that may see a slight bump in the yield monitor, based on a significant area impacted. When you start thinking about hybrids for next year, make sure you are looking at a hybrid resistant to Goss’s Wilt.” Friskop says most of the corn crop is at dent stage or beyond.
