Agronomy Update: Herbicide Injury Diagnosis in Corn

Published on Thursday, May 17, 2018

I wanted to share with you some observations I have seen in corn after fielding some chemical complaints over the last few days. 

The concern in this specific field was that the corn was dying. Some of the symptoms observed include whitening of the leaf veins and dying off of the bottom leaves. In addition, there were some plants in this same field showing signs of buggy-whipping. 

Check out this video to learn more about what caused these issues as well as my diagnosis for this crop.
