What are your tips for harvesting fields with anthracnose stalk rot?
The biggest issue with anthracnose stalk rot is standability rate. So, if we detect that in the field, we'll definitely want to advise the grower to move that field to the frontend of harvest. This will prevent whatever loss could happen from lodging, especially if we were in a wind storm or a wind event which would could create further lodging. Move that to the front end of harvest to prevent losses.
