Field Crop Update for Indiana

Southern Rust was confirmed in Gibson County this week.  Check out the southern rust publication for more images of southern rust and other diseases that might mimic it. This publication also has good information on determining when a fungicide application will be beneficial. The publication is at following link: https://crop-protection-network.s3.amazonaws.com/publications/cpn-2009-southern-rust.pdf.

Tar Spot – we have started to find a few more sites with tar spot and confirmed a third county – St. Joseph.

We again are requesting if you have any suspect locations to please update us and send a sample. I am especially interested in surrounding counties such as Lake, Jasper, Pulaski, St. Joseph and Starke or anything in the northern part of Indiana.  See this link on a short guide to collecting samples and to few images of both southern rust and tar spot. https://extension.purdue.edu/fieldcroppathology/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Please-Help-Us-Collect-Field-Crop-Disease-Samples.pdf.
