Despite COVID-19, life must go on. Area cornfields were stricken with Tar Spot hard in 2019. Corn growers commonly said they lost 20% of their yield, with a few fields nearing 50% by some estimates.

With all meetings being shut down because of social distancing, we will try something a little new to get the latest management information about Tar Spot. On Monday, at 2 p.m., I have set up a webinar on Tar Spot Management in Northern Indiana. Darcy Telenko, Purdue’s Field Crop Disease Specialist, will be our speaker.
