Research

Results from a 2011 multistate survey indicated that Setaria spp. (foxtail) were often present in corn fields with a history of Goss’s bacterial wilt and blight, caused by Clavibacter michiganensis subsp. nebraskensis (Cmn). The objective of this research was to determine if Setaria spp. that are common in the Midwest are susceptible to infection by Cmn.
