Pest Profile

Sorghum downy mildew


Sorghum downy mildew infects plants shortly after emergence when soils are saturated. In the systemic phase of the disease, parallel green and white stripes running the entire length of the leaf can be seen. Sometimes only a single tiller on a plant may be infected. Sometimes mistaken for injury from Lumax EZ or Lexar EZ.
