Abstract

Poor seedling stands and root injury often occur when corn is planted in cold soils. Corn stands are reduced largely as a consequence of soil inhabiting fungi invading the germinating kernel resulting in the death of the young seedling before emergence. This group of fungi, largely Pythium species, may also incite a rotting of the seedling root system. This investigation concerns itself with measuring the severity of this corn seedling disease under certain greenhouse conditions m various Iowa soils of different types and cropping sequences.
