Unidentified brown spots on Midwestern corn crop leaves farmers puzzled
Mysterious spots are leaving Midwestern corn producers puzzled in the new year.
A seed agronomist with Peterson Farms says that he first noticed the brown lesions in August, but they did not identify with anything he had seen before. The lesions were found in the Dakotas all the way up to the Canadian border.
Samples were sent to North Dakota University but came back inconclusive.
The report did not mention if any crop was lost to the spot but the agronomist suggests farmers keep an eye out for them this growing season.
