This planting season has been so wet in Iowa with flood happening every week. This naturally leads to questions what will happen to crop diseases. So far this season has some similarity to what happen in 1993, my first year at Iowa State University and those experiences have stayed with me. That year planting was so delayed that planting related questions were a major topic to ISU agronomy extension even in early summer field days. Looking at what happened in 1993 may provide some clues to disease management this season if the weather pattern continues to produce the similarity.
