Crown And Stem Rot Disease
Presents Problem For Farmer
Recent severe weather has ap
parently added another problem 1
for farmers of Piedmont and:
Western North Carolina.
J. C. Wells, plant pathologist
for the N. C. Agricultural Ex-1
tension Service, »ays the crown!
and stem rot disease of forage
legumes is becoming widespread
in the area.
The disease is leaving circu
lar patches of dead and dying
plants in fields of alfalfa, and
crimson, red and Ladino clover.
The spots or patches vary from
a few inches in diameter to
many feet. Affected plants look
as though scalding water has
been poured over them.
For farmers whose legumes al
ready have the disease there’re
few controls Wells can suggest.
“Plant pathologists at State
College are studying the di
sease," he said. “So far, they
haven’t worked out any recom
mendations for controlling the
disease once it starts in the
The only control recommenda
tion now available comes from
California. And Wells isn’t too
certain that it will give the
same results here as it did in
The California folks -suggest
spraying each acre of infected
plants with 12 to 15 pounds of
terraclor mixed with 100 gallons
of water. They say the terra-,
clor gives effective control if!
applied when the first sign of;
the disease appears in early
This same material, the Cali
fornia researchers say, will give
even better control if applied
late in the fall prior to de
velopment of the disease.
While Wells doesn’t have
many recommendations for con

trolling crown, and stem rot once
it gets started, he does have
some suggestions for preventing
“There are two main sug
gestions,” lie said, “rotation and)
Crown and stem rot is caused
by a fungus. The fungus at
tacks the stems and crowns,
causing death of young seed
lings. Older plants are not as
severely attacked. In some
cases the older plants are not
killed outright. Instead, they
are weakened, shorting the life
of the stand.
After it has destroyed the
plants, the crown and stem rot
fungus produces small, black,
tough bodies about the size of
wheat kernels. These kernel
like bodies lie on the soil sur
face and carry the fungus
through the hot summer which
is unfavorable for its growth.
They germinate during the fall 1
when the weather is again cool)
and wet. Small, toadstool-like;
structures, which develop from)
the kernels, produce the spores
or seed of the fungus. These
spores re-infect plants and start
the disease off anew each year.
Crown and stem rot attacks
a large rfudibdf flf' JegOnfindus
forage plants. Even some weeds
are attacked. The disease, how
ever, does not attack lepedeza,
grasses and some other crops.
Therefore, Wells suggests that
crops such as corn, cotton, small
grain and lepedeza should be
grown for at least two years—
and preferably three between
plantings of ciover or alfalfa.
In the absence of a suitable host
the fungus soon perishes.
“If it is necessary to follow
clovers with alfalfa, or vice!
versa, deep plowing is recom-l
mended in preparing the seed
bed,” Wells added. “Deep plow
ing turns the kernel-like bodies
well into the soil, making it im
possible for their spores to reach
the surface.” .
Crown and stem rot doesn’
become a problem every year,
which makes it difficult to plan
control measures. Wells be
lieves the severe weather, which
j has just passed, nas caused the
| disease to become a severe prob-
I lem this year, however.
They never sought in vain
that sought the Lord aright.
