Using stunning computer animations blended with real-life video, this teaching video impressively illustrates the disease cycles of five major fungal pathogens of corn, which can and do cause significant losses of crop yield and quality:

  • Common rust (Puccinia sorghi)
  • Northern leaf blight (Exserohilum turcicum)
  • Eyespot disease (Kabatiella zeae)
  • Gray leaf spot (Cercospora zeae-maydis)
  • Fusarium ear rot (Fusarium spp.)

Your students and extension audiences will gain a clear understanding of the development and epidemiological spread of the diseases as well as measures to control them.
