Blight resistant by Jim Mone Arne daily Tribune writer Ames idea seventy five per cent of the seed Corn sold next Spring in Eastern Iowa Illinois Indiana and parts of Ohio is expected to carry with it the Strain which could produce com blight. Dean Foley a pathologist at Iowa state University said a Survey by seed companies producing 80 per cent of All seed com in the country indicates the com growing area of mid America will receive about 400,000 pounds of seed. Some 98,000 pounds erf the seed is ear rot resistant while the remainder carries strains of a Little known to cytoplasm or quot Texas male the Strain its full effects Little known took its share of the Iowa com crop this year in com blight. Foley estimates the loss at about 10 per cent with its efforts sporadic from less than one per cent in one Field to heavy damage in Fields a few Miles away. The to Strain is a character not inherited through genes it is carried by the female but male crosses cannot change the susceptibility of the disease in new crosses according to the Iowa state expert. Com blight is not new. The present Case of blight was discovered in Iowa after Foley and pathologist Charles Martin also of Iowa state isolated the disease Helminth Sportum Maydis in August of 1969 in year old com stored in a bin. Apparently the ear rot or blight was present last year in Western and Southern Iowa but mis diagnosed with blame put on the weather. Holes in the leaves were thought caused by Hail and a Low test weight of Corn was attributed to drought Foley said. Investigating the problem this year is More difficult Foley explained because some Fields have both ear rot and Leaf blight. Quot it is agreed there Are two strains quot Foley said quot and the t Strain has been identified As the pathologist said the 98,000 pounds erf blight resistant or a cytoplasm bearing seed Corn can succumb to Leaf blight but there is no verified record of ear rot. The 128,000 pounds of the to cytoplasm carrying seed and the 164,000 blended pounds of t and a cytoplasm could cause problems however. While the blend could be safest of the two non resistant seeds Foley said Cash Grain Farmers using the blend could be downgraded if there is evidence of the to Strain. Should the Farmer worry e Oley believes next year s Corn blight will not get any worse because of the resistant materials and the discontinuance of bad hybrids. Quot Farmers always assume certain risks he added. Foley foresees troubled areas like Southern Iowa switching to soybeans while similar areas in Western Iowa might Plant sorghum.
