If you are a hog operator, you know that feeding vomitoxin infected corn is a big problem. As we are now into that time of year, I thought this article about spraying fungicides on corn might be helpful. This is why I talked last winter about using TwinLine on corn, or Quadris, Headline or Acapela along with Folicur. Instead of Folicur which is fairly cheap, you could substitute Prosaro or Proline or Caramba.
The forecast for the next 14 days is normal to below normal temperatures with showery conditions. Ideal for infection. Just like it was at wheat heading. All we need after this is a bunch of wet weather in Sept/Oct. With that combination we could be in for a bout of gibberella ear rot come harvest time.
