Blightline July 25, 2016

Late blight has not been reported in ND or MN. Finally, we are looking forward to good drying weather after the rounds of thunderstorms last week that added more rain to already too wet fields. The excessive rain dramatically increased late blight severity values in northern and eastern ND and northwestern MN, and many sites have exceeded the threshold value of 15. This is especially true in non-irrigated fields. Late blight can move long distance with thunderstorms, and it is possible that late blight can leapfrog from western MB to northern ND where abundant water and conditions favorable for late blight are present. Growers should scout frequently for late blight and apply a protectant fungicide to fields, including fields that may be abandoned due to water damage.

Aphid Alert for July 11-15

Aphid Alert for July 11-15

More traps are reporting and while aphid vector numbers are slowly rising, although this is partly because of additional trap site reporting. The PVY Risk Index numbers are starting to creep up, check the maps below for your area's risk. We recovered Green Peach Aphids from 3 locations (Crookston, Hoople and Lake of the Woods). The rest of the vector species recovered were a bit of a mixed bag and generally low. As always though, keep scouting!

No late blight has been reported in ND, MN or MB. Late blight (US23) has been reported near Bronson in Branch County, Michigan, and in Maryland.  Late blight severity values are accumulating in north central ND and northwestern MN due to the recent rains, and some sites have reached or are nearing the threshold value of 15. At this value, the accumulated weather conditions are favorable for late blight infection if inoculum is present. The protective fungicides manzozeb and chlorothalonil provide protection for both late and early blight and are best applied just before or at row closure. We recommend that growers continue to scout often for late blight.

No late blight has been reported in ND or MN. Late blight severity values are beginning to accumulate in northern and eastern ND and northwestern MN due to the recent rains, and are nearing the threshold value of 15. The Rolla site is at 17 and a protective fungicide should be applied to potatoes in that area to protect against late blight. At this value, the accumulated weather conditions are favorable for late blight infection if inoculum is present.

July is National Picnic Month

July is National Picnic Month

Try this quiz if you are ready to keep your family and friends safe from foodborne illness during hot summer months. "Perishable" means a food will be "go bad" if it is kept out too long at room temperature. We need to keep perishable foods out of the temperature danger zone (40 to 140 F) to keep them safe.

Colorado Potato Beetle Foliar Insecticides

Colorado Potato Beetle Foliar Insecticides

It’s shaping up to be a Colorado Potato Beetle (CPB) year in the Red River Valley. Seems even if an at-plant insecticide was applied, CPB are plentiful in some fields. There are a few possible reasons this is happening. Here is a list of insecticides and their estimated efficacy.
