Abstract:

Maize is having a high yield potential and the problem of increasing demand of food and feed for the growing population can be solved by producing more corn in the coming years. Among the constraints faced by this cereal crop, one is the biotic stress. Rust is a very important disease problem of corn and specially the southern corn rust may pose a serious threat to maize production. Southern Rust pathogen is a biotroph and cannot exist without living host. So, it is very important to study this disease thoroughly considering its mode of spread, epidemiology, yield loss, occurrence of epidemics in different countries and most importantly the management strategies that can be followed in minimizing the yield loss due to this disease. In this article specially these important issues of southern corn rust is discussed in detail.
