A disease process on my corn crop
My corns are ripening now but I have a problem. I picked one yesterday and, while husking it, found that the tip of the corn was damaged by what seemed to me like some disease. Some of the kernels were brownish in color and distateful looking. I picked a couple more of the corn and they too were afflicted by what seems like the same disease. Can anyone help me identify the problem, plus what I can do to prevent it? Thank you for any information.
