Excerpt from OMAFRA Publication 811: Agronomy Guide for Field Crops
Sulfonylurea (ALS) injury on corn often appears as a "flash" on the leaf. Typically, corn outgrows this level of injury. Symptoms can include a yellow discolouration of the leaves, yellow flash on leaf (as shown), stunting of the plant, a delay in plant development and crinkled leaves or bleaching near the whorl. Onion-leafing or a purpling of stem or leaves may also occur. Some ALS herbicides may also reduce the root mass by shortening lateral roots. These herbicides should not be applied to corn that has been treated with an organophosphorus insecticide due to the increased risk of injury.
