Zook, L. L. & Jodon, N. E. (1930). Seed corn treatments at the North Platte substation (University of Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station Circular No. 38)
For the past several years, much publicity has been given to the matter of seed corn treatments. Various commercial compounds have been widely and extravagantly advertised for general farm use as seed corn disinfectants. The effectiveness of many of these compounds in controlling certain seed-borne diseases has been demonstrated in some of the more humid areas of the corn belt. Very little is known of the distribution of these diseases and the extent to which they affect the germination and productiveness of seed corn in the drier or semiarid sections.
