Art Schaafsma, pest specialist at Ridgetown college, warns that the higher rate won't prevent poor stands, especially for non-certified seed that hasn't been cleaned to remove tombstone kernels.

"The seedling blight phase of fusarium can spread," Schaafsma stresses. "One tombstone kernel can kill the three or four plants near to it."
Schaafsma is recommending that farmers ensure their seed is thoroughly cleaned to remove tombstone. But he also adds that cleaning alone won't boost germination rates back to normal. Many plump looking kernels have enough fusarium on or in them to kill them, he points out.
"This is a critical year for seed treatment," Schaafsma. "Vitaflo is quite good against fusarium, although it isn't perfect."
Schaafsma is encouraging farmers to insist on the high application rate of the seed protectant.

Tests by Schaafsma at Ridgetown show that plowing cuts the number of adult moths that a field produces by over 90 per cent. See Table One.
Schaafsma adds that the management decision made on a particular field may be futile, depending on by the stalk choices that farmers have made through the rest of the township and county.
