Head smut—Sphacelotheca reiliana—a soil-borne fungus disease, which can not be controlled by chemical seed treatment, is one of the most destructive enemies of corn, sorghum, and sudan-grass. It has become established in central California and appears to be increasing in severity and spreading in area.
