Two types of smut attack corn in the Pacific Northwest: common smut and head smut. This publication provides descriptions of symptoms and the disease cycle, and management strategies (which differ considerably between the two types). There is also significant new information, particularly related to common smut, regarding losses and control through variety selection.
