Cladosporium ear rot

Cladosporium herbarum and other species often infect kernels damaged by insects, hail, or frost. This fungus appears gray to black or very dark green, and can have a powdery appearance. It also causes black streaks in the kernels. This disease can be fairly common but usually does not cause extensive damage to the ears.
