Location, Location, Location: Does it Matter for Southern Corn Rust Management?

An American Society of Agronomy webinar sponsored by the Crop Protection Network.

Date: Thursday, December 16, 2021
Time: 12:00 Noon-1:00 PM Eastern/11:00 AM-12:00 Noon Central/10:00-11:00 AM Mountain/9:00-10:00 AM Pacific

Southern corn rust is caused by Puccinia polysora, an important yield-limiting foliage disease. The fungus is annually reintroduced into major corn production areas of the United States and Canada at various times during the cropping season. The onset of disease development and the growth stage of the corn crop greatly impact management decisions. In this webinar, three Extension plant pathologists will discuss the management of southern corn rust among different United States corn production regions.

Speakers:

  • Travis Faske, Professor and Extension Plant Pathologist, University of Arkansas
  • Robert Kemerait, Professor and Extension Specialist, University of Georgia
  • Alison Robertson, Professor and Extension Field Pathologist, Iowa State University

CEUs:

CCA/CPAg: 1.0 Pest Management
CPSS/CPSC: 1.0 Professional Meetings

Free to all registrants. Register Now!

Registration includes access to the webinar recording for 30 days.
