Case Study: Doubling Down on Fungicide

Ag Intelligence in the New Ag of Crop Disease

Tar Spot, which was only discovered in 2015, is capable of destroying up to 100 bu/ac of corn.

Crop disease is a constant threat to farmers’ well-being. In 2018 alone, the Crop Protection Network reported that disease destroyed an astonishing 10.9% of all corn yields across the United States and Ontario, adding up to hundreds of millions of bushels and billions of dollars in losses. And the problem is only getting worse.


Between 2020 and 2021, two new diseases known as Southern Rust and Tar Spot rapidly expanded their reach across the state of Illinois, firmly establishing themselves as persistent threats to corn for the foreseeable future. Both of these are especially deadly to the corn crop, with Southern Rust regularly destroying 20-40 bu/ac and Tar Spot capable of a staggering 50-100 bu/ac. Finding effective ways to combat these diseases is now more important than ever.
