A recent report on Corn Crop Quality in relation to the disease
problems of 2017 Nebraska Corn crop.
Solution 32 application on Spring Wheat and Spring Barley leads to
similar disease problems found in corn, such as Fusarium and Downey
Mildew and a lodged crop, both Fungus and
Bacterial diseases do a lot better with copious amounts of nitrate.
brewing barley is always raised with Ammonium. A plumb kernel at 50
lb. Test Weight is produced for the Maltster with TAPPS and TAPPKTS.
How critical it is to keep Fusarium out of Brewing Barley.
A review of harvest diseases of corn. Jackson Ziems, Rees, and
Haverson points to the solution.
I am wondering
if the scientists have just recently discovered that the over
application of nitrogen can cause ear rot and fusarium problems and
bacterial diseases in a mix. It should be
noted that the type of nitrogen creates most of the problem.
The key point is
the type of nitrogen causes most of the problem.
The scientists are not talking about Exactrix Ammonium in a balance
of NPKS. They are talking about in season Nitrate.
cannot read through the problem since N is all types of Nitrogen.

of 32-0-0 applied with an inaccurate pivot that can bring on disease
problems of corn ears, leaves and stalks.
The corn cell
walls are thin and have deep green coloring of leaves. The extreme
deep green color shows the effect of thin cell walls in the leaves
The result of
the copious rates of N creates an extreme nitrate rich plant and a
great target for Fusarium.
Correct rates of
TAPPS and TAPPKTS seldom produce this thin cell wall problem mainly
because of Uniformity, Balance of Nutrients, and Ammonium Nutrition.
The corn plant color is Steiger green.
The one key
point in the document is balanced nutrition....and begging for
Potassium in the mix. Which means this material must be placed in
the soil for best effective use.
I found the

less. In fact Less is required to Raise More.
