In addition to primary plant injury due to hail, secondary damage can occur later from fungal and bacterial pathogens. Research has shown that fungal pathogens don’t increase injury in hail-damaged plants; however, bacterial pathogens will enter plant wounds. This video addresses the potential for continued injury from disease and how best to manage harvest and grain storage. This is the fifth video in a series from Nebraska Extension Hail Know.
