Untreated tar spot found in Mt. Joy, PA Grow More™ Experience site.

First spotted in the Midwest in 2016, tar spot has since spread to cornfields throughout the country including the Mt. Joy, PA, Grow More Experience site. Tar spot was first recorded in PA in 2020 and has reappeared again in multiple counties. Plus, with the ability to overwinter, it’s likely tar spot isn’t going away anytime soon.

Watch as Syngenta Agronomy Service Representative Craig Austin shares his insights into tar spot, disease management tips and the importance of a preventive fungicide application.

Prevent tar spot with the right management plan

To help battle tar spot, we recommend applying a fungicide that provides superior disease control and prioritizes plant health to help maximize your corn’s ROI and yield potential.

For the southern regions, we recommend Trivapro® fungicide for consistent long-lasting control of key corn diseases including tar spot, rusts, leaf spots and blights. As a trusted workhorse from application to harvest, Trivapro helps boost corn’s yield potential under high or low disease pressure. To find out how many bushels Trivapro can help you save, use our yield calculator.

For the northern regions, an application of Miravis® Neo fungicide can help protect corn from yield-robbing diseases. Powered by Adepidyn® technology, Miravis Neo sets the standard for broad-spectrum control of diseases like gray leaf spot, Northern corn leaf blight and tar spot.
