Bacterial wilt or Stewart's disease of Corn
The Canner 56(10): 164-166
Bacterial wilt or Stewart's disease of maize occurs in the southern and middle United States and has, in a few isolated cases, been reported as far north as southern Michigan and in Albany, New York. In severe cases the crop may be almost totally destroyed over an extensive area; the author frequently found 90 to 100 per cent. of natural infection in certain varieties in his experimental plots.
