Management Practices

Most commercial varieties are susceptible, but some show significant partial resistance.

  • Plant early to avoid late season hot temperatures.
  • Avoiding excessive nitrogen rates.
  • No pesticides are currently recommended to control this disease.
  • Do not plant seed from fields that were seriously affected the previous year.
