Tobacco Target Spot

As of today target spot (rhizoctonia solani) has been observed as being very aggressive in tobacco fields in Berrien County. Target spot starts in the lower canopy and moves up the plant. Lesions appear as concentric rings and vary from small to large depending on time of infection. Not every field should be sprayed so disease incidence should be accessed and monitored. If there are any concerns please call me. Below is a picture of target spot:
