No Treatment Known for Eradicating Corn Smut [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 4 September 1929
No Treatment Known for Eradicating Corn Smut Unfortunately , there is no treatment known for corn smut . It can be reduced somewhat by growing the corn on land that has not grown corn for some years and by cutting off and carrying out of the field any smut balls that form . These should be buried or burned to destroy them . Ordinarily , they are allowed to go witli the cornstalks to the feed yards where they become incorporated with the mauure supplies . This -happens to be a good place to preserve them and they go back to the land when the manure Is applied . If the cornstalks are left stahding in the field , the smut balls become incorporated with the soil when the land is plowed or disked and rein ; fection occurs when the corn is grown . There isnt any remedy for it except to reduce the smut balls all yort possibly can by destroying them and keeping them out of the feed supplies .
