Abstract

Cold and wet planting conditions predispose corn seedlings to infection with soil-borne pathogens like Rhizoctonia solani, Fusarium spp., and Pythium spp. Corn fungicide seed treatments reduced soil-borne pathogen infection, and thus increased corn seedling vigor. Field performance of corn grown from seed treated with experimental fungicide seed treatment packs was evaluated.
