Farmers need to be aware of several diseases that can affect corn and soybean crops during the spring growing season. The following are some of the most common corn and soybean diseases to watch for during this time.
Some planting has gone well where the corn has already spiked up out of the ground. In other areas, I’ve seen pivots running just to wet the ground before planting because the ground was too dry and hard.
Pests like seed corn maggot, wireworms and white grub as well as diseases like Pythium and Phytophthora can reduce soybean stands early in the season. Cover crops or heavy crop residue keep soils cooler and can delay emergence, which can increase the vulnerability of seeds and seedlings to pests. LumiGEN® seed treatments provide advanced protection against pests, disease and uncertain soil conditions during the critical early growth period.
