Maize Eyespot

The amount of maize grown in the UK has increased significantly over the last decade, due to both the three-crop rule and an increasing use of maize in anaerobic digesters. As this area expands, the disease risk increases as pathogens become more prevalent, evolving and adapting to UK conditions.

There are 5 main diseases: Fusarium, Northern Corn Leaf Blight, Common Rust, Smut and Eyespot. These diseases can potentially impact maize silage yields and quality of feed. Early detection and treatment are therefore essential.

Issued June 2019.
