Crop Minute Week of August 2

August 4, 2010

Daren Mueller, Iowa State University Extension plant pathologist, takes a look at the different crop diseases showing up or not showing up in Iowa this growing season in this week's crop minute. Mueller mentions the lack of white mold, presence of stem canker in neighboring states and sudden death syndrome's spread in Iowa.

At this point in the growing season, there are no treatments to save this year's crop but scouting for crop diseases makes it possible for producers to set up management strategies for end of the season and for future years.
