Description

"The purpose of this bulletin is to familiarize the farmer with the appearance, distribution, nature, and economic importance of the brown-spot of corn and to offer certain helpful suggestions for its control.... High temperature in combination with high humidity favors the development of the disease. For this reason the damage is greater in the South, where high temperatures prevail throughout the summer and the rainfall is rather heavy. The disease is caused by a minute fungus parasite.... Careful field sanitation, crop rotation, and seed selection aid in controlling the disease." -- p. 2
