Bacterial wilt or Stewart's disease of sweet Corn
Trans. Illinois State Hort. Soc 66: 336-347
Extremely heavy damage was caused in 1931 and 1932 in Illinois by the bacterial wilt of maize. In the latter year nearly every plant in each of the 66 fields inspected by B. Koehler and J. R. Holbert showed the presence of leaf blight, the loss of green leaf area ranging from a trace to 50 per cent. with an average of 16.6 per cent.
