Research

The objectives of this study were to: (i) assess the efficacy of fungicide applications against Diplodia ear rot under inoculated and non-inoculated field conditions and observe impact of fungicide programs on corn yield; (ii) establish the plant growth stage where fungicides will be most effective at reducing disease development; (iii) determine the effect of fungicides on in vitro mycelial growth or conidial germination of S. maydis.
