    Noticed a few ears with a nasty black messy looking growth on the end. Didn't have camera to take pic. Is this isolated to each stalk or does it spread to nearby ears. I'm wondering if a stress in drought caused it. Anything to do with it?

    Corn smut I suspect
    Won't hurt a thing will effect a good percentage of ears

    Usually from stress
