Description

Northern corn leaf blight (NCLB), caused by the fungus Exserohilum turcicum, is an increasingly important disease in the U.S. Corn Belt. NCLB can cause yield loss if it develops before or during the tasseling and silking phases of corn development. This publication describes how to correctly identify the disease, conditions that favor disease development, the impact of the disease, and how to manage the disease.
