Abstract

It is the generally accepted opinion among botanists that corn smut (Ustilago zeae-mays) enters the tissues of its host during the early stages of corn, shortly after germination. These opinions are based on the careful experiments conducted by Dr. Julius Kuehn, a careful German investigator. Last spring some experiments were started on the College Farm with the view of preventing this troublesome disease. It was expected, of course, that the results at the close of the season would show a decided advantage in the treated corn, but to my surprise the results were entirely negative.
