Disease Footnotes

Footnote to sweet corn: the effectiveness of rust resistance genes in sweet corn will be determined by the variation of common rust races in each growing environment. Rust races are continually evolving, so that rust resistance genes that were effective in the past may suddenly and unexpectedly lose their effectiveness. It is necessary to scout for rust disease development, so that alternative disease control strategies can be deployed in the event that major gene resistance proves ineffective. Syngenta Seeds is an associate member of the International Seed Federation and supports the initiative to use consistent terminology to describe plant disease and resistance. For further information, see http://worldseed.org/isf/diseases_resistance.html. In cases where specific races or strains are not noted, the variety is resistant to some, but not necessarily all known races or strains of the pathogen.
