1 Southern Rust of Corn: Outline Distinguishing common rust vs. southern rust Southern rust is potentially much more destructive Guidelines to consider in fungicide decisions Monitor for stalk strength

2 2 Corn Rusts Tropical Physopella zeae Southern Puccinia polysora Common Puccinia sorghi

3 Uredia of southern rust (upper leaf surface view)

15 Corn acreage planted in Mexico

16 Corn acres planted, Lower Mississippi Valley

17 Alice Robert’s race differential set for P. polysora

18 Collaboration with USDA Cereal Rust Laboratory to develop DNA-based diagnostics for corn rusts

19 Pace of disease progress under worst-case conditions 5-6 weeks: From undetected to substantial damage 2-3 weeks: Can cause substantial damage, if disease is present… …More or less throughout the field (even at very low levels) …In all levels of the canopy (lower, middle, and upper)

20 Days after mid-silk R2 (blister stage): days R3 (milk stage): days R4 (dough stage): days R5 (dent stage): days R6 (physiological maturity): days

21 Watch for loss of stalk strength
