Blightline July 24, 2014

No late blight has been reported in our region. The recent storm caused late blight severity values to increase quickly the past three days. The threshold value of 15 has been reached at all locations except Beach, Leonard, Williston, Grand Forks and St. Thomas. At the severity value threshold of 15, weather conditions have accumulated sufficiently for late blight to occur if inoculum is present. Application of a protectant fungicide such as mancozeb or chlorothalonil on a 7-10 day schedule is recommended.

No late blight has been reported in our region. Late blight severity values did not increase the past three days. If severity values in your area have accumulated to 15, application of a protectant fungicide such as mancozeb or chlorothalonil on a 7-10 day schedule is recommended. Many sites have reached this threshold. P-day values, an indicator or early blight, are approaching 250-300 in many areas, and growers should consider application of an early blight fungicide and scout for the presence of early blight. Growers and scouts have reported that very little early blight is present now. The cool weather does not favor development of early blight.

High counts were at our Linton sites with three and four vectors. Ada, Erskine, Forest River, Hallock, Hoople, Langdon, and Staples collected no vectors. Species captured include buckthorn, bird-cherry oat, green bug, english grain, sunflower, cowpea, and pea aphids. These are all medium efficiency vectors.
