Blightline July 17, 2015

No late blight has been reported or confirmed in our region of ND, MN or MB. Late blight has been reported in potatoes in the provinces of Alberta and Ontario, and additional late bight has been reported in potatoes in Adams, Waushara and Wood counties in Wisconsin. Late blight severity values in our regions have increased dramatically this week due to the frequent thunderstorms and high humidity. All irrigated and non-irrigated locations have now reached late blight severity values of 15. At this threshold value of 15, accumulated conditions are conducive for late blight if inoculum is present. Growers are encouraged to apply a protective fungicide such as chlorothalonil or mancozeb, and scout fields for late blight, concentrating in areas that are wet longer such as low areas, near shelterbelts or around pivot wells.

Signs of Metribuzin Damage in Potato

Signs of Metribuzin Damage in Potato

Metribuzin applied to potatoes postemergence can cause chlorosis of the veins for a variety of reasons. It can be that cultivars are more sensitive to the herbicide, or the environmental conditions promote slow metabolism, or the soil conditions make metribuzin more active. Knowing these things will help ensure crop safety when using metribuzin.

Focus on Potato: Managing Diseases with Biopesticides in Potato Production

Focus on Potato: Managing Diseases with Biopesticides in Potato Production

Potato diseases account for a significant portion of crop production costs and yield losses each year. A broad range of plant pathogens can impact quality and yield of potato plants both in the field and post-harvest in transit or storage. For some chronic diseases, fungicides are essential to protect yield and quality. Growers, now more than ever, have an increasing number of biopesticide options available to integrate into their overall disease management programs. Understanding the modes of action of biopesticides is critical in making such products work for successful disease management. This presentation will address some of the basics of biopesticides including product categories, modes of action, and efficacy as they pertain to conventional potato systems.
