Bacterial leaf streak was confirmed for the first time in Iowa and other states in 2016. There is not a lot known about the disease but researchers at Colorado State University, Iowa State University, Kansas State University and University of Nebraska are collaborating to understand the disease and its impact on corn with partial funding through the Farm Bill.
