Farmer reports southern rust in his area

Southwestern Indiana farmer Mark Seib says he’s seeing some Southern Rust in his fields.  

“We’ve had a lot of southern rust— it’s started to move into this area,” he says.

Seib tells Brownfield he isn’t too concerned…“We used fungicide on all of our corn and so we feel we may have some side effects to it but hopefully the fungicide works the way it’s suppose to and we’ll be in great shape,” he says.

He grows corn and soybeans in Posey County.
