Blightline June 26

Blightline June 26

No late blight has been reported in our region. Late blight has been reported in potatoes in Adams County, WI. The genotype has not yet been identified. Late blight severity values are accumulating due to the wet and cool conditions in June. Several irrigated locations have reached late blight severity values of 15, including Beach, Inkster, Leonard, Linton, Michigan and Oakes. At this threshold value, accumulated conditions are conducive for late blight if inoculum is present; growers are encouraged to apply a protective fungicide such as chlorothalonil or mancozeb. Chlorothalonil is in short supply this year and may be difficult to find.

Blightline June 22

No late blight has been reported in our region. As you all know, our potato planting and emergence are ahead of normal, and late blight severity values are accumulating due to the wet and cool conditions in June. Several locations have reached late blight severity values of 15, including Beach, Leonard and Oakes. At this threshold value, accumulated conditions are conducive for late blight if inoculum is present, growers are encouraged to apply a protective fungicide such as chlorothalonil or mancozeb. Chlorothalonil is in short supply this year and may be difficult to find.

Aphid Alert Start for 2015

Aphid Alert Start for 2015

And so it begins..... Traps have begun to report and there have been some aphids flying already. Including one Green Peach Aphid recovered from Ada, MN! Not an auspicious start to the year but I suspect the winged GPA recovered in the trap is a recent immigrant to our fair Valley. The winds were right for immigration events two weeks ago and we had rain, which would have brought airborne aphids to the ground. While it's doubtful we have treatable populations of aphids in potatoes yet, this week's trap catch indicates it's never too early to start scouting...
