When it comes to scouting, farmers need to take a proactive approach to disease throughout the entire growing season. Farm Journal’s Associate Field Agronomist Missy Bauer explains that the best scouting procedures take advantage of both the Pest and Disease Triangles when determining a crop management issue.

In Episode 7 of Corn College TV Season 3, Bauer talks about some common diseases, their symptoms, and when they are most likely to occur. "This is a key part," she says. "Are the conditions conducive for that disease to actually develop? Temperatures, humidity, rainfall- what has to come together to make that happen?"

Anthracnose, Common Rust, and Northern Corn leaf Blight are a few examples she discusses throughout the episode. Learn more about these diseases and their treatment in Episode 7 of Season 3 below.
