During the past two yearB there
serin.-, to have been a gradual increase
in the amount of damaged or rotten
corn hi the Heids throughout the Btate.
Investigations started last fall and
continued this summer show that the
large majority of this trouble is due
to a fungus disease Known as dry rot
or ear rot of corn. In one Held re
cently Investigated in Darlington
county we found 20 per cent, of the
ears destroyed by t:..s disease. Re
ports have come in from other sections
showing that the disease is wide-1
spread i ml is causing considerable
damage. Now any disease that in
pures our corn crop is of vital inter
est, and every farmer should know
enough about such a disease to enable
him to recognize It when be comes in
contact with It. and to enable him to
I combat it where it causes loss, it is
; hoped that at least a part of such
knowledge will be gained from this
Symptoms of the disease are very
j characteristic. At the time the corn
, begins to ripen, the husks on the dis
j eased ears turn permaiurely yellow.
I Later, they assume a mottled or black
I Ish appearance and seem to stick very
I close to the ears. When the husks are
, pulled back from such ears, the grains
I will be found to be shriveled and ln
| mature and the ear will be noticeably
? decreased In weight. Later, the grains
appear very brittle and frequently as
sume a brownish color. At this stage
the whole ear Is usually overrun w ith !
a white looking mold. When the dls- j
eased ears are broken across, small
black fruiting bodies of the fungus
Will he found on the tips of the gains
and in the cob.
This rot is caused by a parasitic
fungus. Diplodea inaydis. Studies of
the life history of the fungus recently
made at the Nebraska and Illinois F,x
periment stations show that the fuu
gus lives over winter on the diseased
ears and stalks which are left In the
field. It spreads from these to the
new corn the following season at the
time the corn fs in silk and tassel.
The infection takes place through the
silks. If the weather conditions are
jfe.voi.lble for the development of the i
fungus at this stage the disease
spreads very rapidly. At the Illinois
station the fungus has been found to
live on the old corn stalks In the'
Held for two years, and in some cases
for three years. They recommend that
? the corn stalks be removed from .he
Held and destroyed and that a rota
tion be practiced which will keep corn,
off of the land for two years. It seems
that such measures would eliminate
the disease. I have in mind one case
in this State, however, where the dis
ease has doue considerable damage
in the face of such rotation, so ic
seems that some further data are needl
ed before we can give definite mea
sures for controlling the disease, [nt
this connection It is well to keep in
mind the fact that removing the conn!
stalks from the field eliminates one oC j
the principal sources of infection for i
the next season. This emphasizes the
advantage to be gained by cutting and i
shredding the corn. As stated above, j
however, we need more data which
will apply to southern methods and"
conditions. In order to secure such
Information, we need co-operation. We
are pushing chis investigation now and
are asking- ahnt every one who has the
disease In his field Will write us about
it and send us specimens. We have
on hand a number of franked tags
which will bring specimens through '
the mail irve of cost, and we will be
glad to Bond these to anyone desiring
to send such specimens. Where eases
seem t<? warrant it. we will be glad
to visit tlclds where the disease is
Causing trouble and look into the con
ditions prevailing there.
