Fungal diseases common to grasses, grains, and corn. Corn smut attacks kernels, tassels, stalks, and leaves. Smut galls ripen, rupture and release spores through the air to infect other plants and overwinter in the soil. Select resistant cultivars, remove and compost galls before they break open and rotate crops. Spray Bio Wash (to clean plants) as preventative.
