This weekend, Dr Tamra Jackson-Ziems at University of Nebraska-Lincoln reported that Goss’s wilt had been spotted in multiple cornfields in three counties in south central and eastern Nebraska. She suspects that infection may have occurred as a result of plant wounding due to severe storms earlier in the growing season. The infected corn plants were at the V6 growth stage and had characteristic lesions of Goss’s wilt. A few plants were systemically infected.
