Ahome corn growers alerted for drying problems

Los Mochis, Sinaloa.- The Local Board of Plant Health of the Valle del Fuerte launched an alert to corn producers in the Ahome region, in the face of the problems of drying that are occurring in some productive areas. Francisco Javier Orduño Cota, manager of the agency in charge of monitoring regional agricultural plant health, said that this situation cannot be attributed to the appearance of any particular disease, but rather is the result of all the stress that the crop has been accumulating during this season, as a result of a series of situations that have been presented and that have affected the development of the crop “In recent weeks there have been cuts of the water supply to the crops in the management chain between Conagua, Irrigation Modules and users, which has caused stress in the crop, coupled with a second stress due to heavy irrigation as this has been applied extemporaneously. This water stress associated with other nutritional factors, mainly nitrogen deficiencies, predispose the corn plant to the attack and colonization of primary, secondary and even tertiary phytopathogens, causing the plant to begin an agonizing phase of termination of life until it dies completely. ” Read more: A success! 60 thousand visitors received Expoceres 2022 in Los Mochis, Sinaloa He revealed that unfortunately when the disease begins there is no “magical” product that saves it, so its management must be preventive and this is achieved through good agronomic management of the crop.
