North Carolina Corn: Southern Rust Reported In State

North Carolina State University Extension advised Thursday that southern rust was reportedly found in corn near Kinston.

“We (also) have a reliable report that southern rust…has been found at a few locations in North Carolina,” the advisory further noted. “Southern rust (also) has been found this week in South Carolina and is found throughout much of Georgia at this time. Growers need to be prepared to make a fungicide application. High temperatures next week should restrict development…in the short term.”

However, Hurricane Arthur “may spread rust over larger areas.”

The report was issued by Steve Koenning, Field Crops Extension Pathologist, and Ron Heiniger, Extension Agronomist.
