Research underway to better detect, manage tar spot

Research is underway to better detect and manage tar spot, a disease that is difficult to manage once it appears in corn.

Purdue University Assistant Professor Christian Cruz discusses some of the research his lab is conducting.

“The research I’m conducting right now to improve the ways we can scout for disease includes using imagery with drones and proximal sensing and also some of the methods we’re developing to inoculate and study the disease under controlled environments,” he says.
