Fusarium stalk rot - red internal discoloration of sorghum stalks infected by Fusarium species.. The risk of sorghum stalk rot developing in these crops is likely to be higher in 2011 crops than in other years... Plants may or may not display symptoms of fusarium stalk rot inside the stem at the time of a pre-harvest glyphosate spray, so it is difficult to determine the potential risk of lodging in these situations...
