What is anthracnose leaf blight? Anthracnose is caused by the fungusColletrotrichum graminicola that causes lesions on the lower leaves of corn.Anthracnose also causes a top die back and stalk rot which can cause significant yield loss. The mild winter of 2015/2016 coupled with high inoculum loads will be conducive to disease outbreaks of residue-borne pathogens in 2016 (if conditions are favorable for disease development). Anthracnose if favored by warm and prolonged wet weather.
Priaxor® fungicide controls early season diseases, such as anthranose, resulting in greater leaf productivity and photosynthesis, and positively impacting #Kernels/Ear(Rows/Ear x Kernels/Ear), the second yield component in the corn yield equation (Yield = Ears/A x Kernels/Ear x Weight/Kernel). For full season disease protection of anthracnose and other foliar diseases, apply Headline AMP® fungicide at VT-R3.
