NDAWN Potato Blight App (06/20/19)

In 2019, the Potato Blightline will be available only through the newly released NDSU NDAWN Potato Blight app or on the NDAWN webpage (https://ndawn.ndsu.nodak.edu/potato-late-blight.html).

In 2019, the Potato Blightline will be available only through the newly released NDSU NDAWN Potato Blight app or on the NDAWN webpage (https://ndawn.ndsu.nodak.edu/potato-late-blight.html). This app was released last year to provide field-specific information of when environmental conditions are favorable for early blight and late blight by entering in key individual field information, such as planting date, emergence date and row closure. The NDAWN Potato Blight app is available on Apple and Android phones and tablets (z.umn.edu/potatoapp). Blightline messages and alerts will be sent through this app to potato growers in North Dakota, and alerts also will be available on the NDAWN webpage. Unfortunately, many of the Minnesota sites will not work for the blight model, but they do have current weather information and can be used for spraying decisions. A video tutorial on how to use the app can be found at z.umn.edu/appvideo. Please remember to send late blight samples to us for confirmation so we can alert growers when late blight has been found. Please let us know if you have any questions on the app.
