Louisiana farmers got a little rain in mid-June but may still be concerned about drought conditions, but one upside is they’re also experiencing the least amount of disease pressure they’ve seen in years says the Delta Farm Press.

Boyd Padgett, LSU Extension pathologist, says Louisiana farmers typically deal with plant diseases, but says so far this season, pressure has been light.

Trey Price, LSU AgCenter research pathologist, agrees with Padgett that the disease situation this season has been light, especially with corn.
