Daren Mueller, Iowa State University Extension plant pathologist, takes a look at the different crop diseases showing up or not showing up in Iowa this growing season in this week’s crop minute. Mueller mentions the lack of white mold, presence of stem canker in neighboring states and sudden death syndrome’s spread in Iowa.
