A technical agronomist says tar spot has been spotty in some areas of the Corn Belt and more aggressive in others.

Andrew Penney with Bayer Crop Science says the disease can be difficult to manage. “Just when we starting thinking we know the weather parameters that are conducive for that pathogen, we still just haven’t seen that massive build up we were expecting.”

He tells Brownfield producers should consider applying a fungicide.
