Cultural Control and Sanitary Methods . The leaf infection appears as irregularly shaped dark-brown to purple spots. Disease management can also be aided by minimizing crop residue through clean plowing and implementing crop rotations in fields where disease has occurred. Brown spot has been historically largely ignored as one of the most common and most damaging rice diseases. In some years it may hasten maturity by causing premature defoliation. It is caused by the fungus Septoria glycines. 0000005382 00000 n MAIZE :: MAJOR DISEASES :: LEAF BLIGHT. avenae Manns (syns. Dark spots on the midribs are a key distinguishing characteristic. The fungus survives in corn residue, and, consequently, the disease is often more severe in corn following corn. Leaf symptoms are not necessarily predictive of stalk rot later in the season. The spots start on the lower leaves; at first, they are oval, but become rectangular, up to 2.5 cm long and 2-6 mm wide, confined by the leaf veins (Photo 1). With the development of the disease (primarily on the lower leaf surface) the spots elongate parallel to the leaf venation. Pathogen It is caused by Maize mosaic potyvirus. The spots merge covering large parts of the leaves. With favorable water, light, and temperature conditions, infections often occur on a diurnal cycle when leaves are in the whorl, resulting in a banded pattern.

Hot, dry weather conditions, on the other hand, suppress disease development. Bareroot seedlings and natural regeneration can be particularly at risk from this disease, more so than containerized seedlings, because they can stay in the grass stage longer. On close-cut grass, such as golf greens, Rhizoctoniabrown patch appears as light brown irregularly shaped areas ranging from a few inches up to two feet in diameter.

Disease cycle It is transmitted in nature by leaf hopper vector, Perigrimus maidis. The primary damage from leaf diseases is a loss of vigor through reduced leaf area. The spots gradually increase in area into bigger elliptical spots and are straw to grayish brown in the centre with dark brown margins. Infection requires a combination of light, free water, and warm temperatures (75-85°F). Individual lesions may be 3 to 4 inches long and 1/16 to 1/8 inch wide, depending on the distance between veins. 0000009075 00000 n Brown spot occurs primarily in the southeastern United States, the Gulf Coast, and the lower Mississippi Valley whe re yield reductions fr om Infection is most common during the V5-V9 stages when water is in the whorls of plants due to wet weather or irrigation.

On highly susceptible varieties, these diseases can cause significant economic damage. Root and collar inoculation and control of brown spot of maize by post-infection spray and soil application of systemic fungicides. Brown spot is a fungal disease that infects the coleoptile, leaves, leaf sheath, panicle branches, glumes, and spikelets.. Its most observable damage is the numerous big spots on the leaves which can kill the whole leaf. Sporangia germinate to produce infective zoospores under conditions of moisture and light. It can cause considerable yield losses; the disease was seen as the main cause of the Great Bengal Famine of 1943, which resulted from yield losses ranging from 40 to 90 % in the previous year (Padmanabhan, 1973).The effects of C. miyabeanus on yield should be determined both quantitatively and qualitatively (Ou, 1985). Most of the important diseases of maize are foliar and the more common ones are rusts, leaf blights, leaf spots, brown spots, downy mildew, and maize streak virus (MSV).. Hybrids vary in their susceptibility to the disease, and crop rotation and tillage reduce survival of inoculum. Symptoms Eyespot presents as many circular to oval spots on the leaf which may coalesce to form large areas of dead tissue. Fungal diseases are presented in the following sequence: foliar diseases, stalk rots, smuts and ear ... Brown spot Physoderma maydis The disease normally occurs in areas of high rainfall and high mean temperatures. Proper ID. The early GLS lesions are yellow to tan in color and look very similar to those of other diseases, except that they often have a faint watery halo which can be seen when held up to the light (Fig. It is not uncommon for Physoderma stalk rot to occur in fields with little to no foliar disease.
