Disease scouting is an important part of the corn growth cycle, as early detection of diseases can have a huge impact on yield. Digital crop scouting and agronomic data analysis allows advisors and farmers to move beyond anecdotal information and get an accurate picture of the diseases threatening their corn crops for more effective decision-making and timely action.
This season, Taranis collected data from millions of acres of corn in the Midwest using leaf-level imagery. Analyzing submillimeter images, we have identified the diseases that affected corn in the 2022 season. Fungal diseases can carry on from year to year, especially on continuous corn fields, therefore noting the major diseases from 2022 can help inform disease management decisions for 2023. As you plan your hybrid and input decisions for next year, make sure to have a look at the main diseases to affect the Midwest this past season.
Leaf-level crop intelligence takes the guesswork and delays out of the disease scouting process. It helps you cover every acre of your field, apply the right product in the right place at the right rate, and validate the results of actions taken early in the season (for example, applying fungicides ahead of time.)
Tailoring your plans for the 2023 season is easier with the proper disease data in hand. Many of these diseases spread from state to state and knowing which new diseases have appeared in which state can help you protect your corn crops.

"Know before you go"—it’s a phrase that is as valuable as it is concise in its offering of insights that tell a field’s story all season long. It’s the Taranis spoiler-alert for yield monitor numbers and the peace-of-mind farmers can rely on to make information-based management decisions.
