Therefore, as a tongue of fire consumes stubble and dry grass collapses into the flame, so their root will become like rot and their blossom blow away as dust; for they have rejected the law of the Lord of hosts and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel. (Isaiah 5:24)

Most of the management of a corn crop is completed during the first half of the growing season. Establishing a consistent stand, managing weeds, and applying nitrogen and other nutrients are all tasks completed before tassel. We might apply a fungicide, insecticide, or foliar nutrition as needed after tassel, but unless irrigation is an option, August and September are usually spent preparing for harvest and praying for optimal weather – warm days, cool nights, and ideal rainfall.

Beck’s Practical Farm Research (PFR)® studies have consistently proven the value of making foliar fungicide applications to soybeans at the R3 growth stage. I am often asked if there is value in adding an insecticide to this treatment. Many of the the late-season soybean pests we deal with are very good at hiding in the dense canopies of soybean fields, which makes it difficult for us to be aware of their presence until after they have caused yield loss.

Tar Spot (Phyllachora maydis) was one of the hottest new corn diseases to hit the US in 2015 and has continued to rear its very distinct, speckled head in subsequent years. We had major outbreaks in 2018 and again in 2021 in various parts of our marketing area. Now that it is here, and we won’t be getting rid of it any time soon, how can we best scout for it and combat this disease?
