Aphid Alert, September 1 2015

Aphid Alert, September 1 2015

It looks like the cooler weather has begun to decrease aphid numbers. We are reporting two weeks worth of data for the Hatton and Tappen sites, and in each case there is a significant reduction in total vectors and PVY risk. Green peach numbers are down and soybean aphids have dropped dramatically in all locations except Ada. PVY-Vector Risk Index values reflect the weekly trap trap catch. Cumulative season PVY-VRI values are nearing those of last year in some locations. For the whole story and detailed catch information, as well as the PVY-VRI maps check out: aphidalert.blogspot.com

Congratulations to all those in the potato industry in ND, MN and MB. No late blight has been reported or confirmed in our region this entire growing season. Growers should continue to scout fields for late blight, concentrating in areas that are wet longer such as low areas, near shelterbelts or around pivot wells. Morning fog and dew are beginning to appear, and these can contribute to free moisture need for late blight infection.

Keep Lunch Safe Without a Refrigerator

I'm trying to save money by bringing lunch from home more often, but we do not have a large refrigerator at work. I have to wait in a long line to use the microwave oven to reheat foods. Do you have any ideas?

Bones are Bad in Potato Production

Bones are Bad in Potato Production

The goal of potato growers is to produce a high-yielding, high-quality crop that is safe for consumption. Animal bones, a foreign material, are a food safety risk, and fields that have bones in the soil are not suitable for potato production.

Blightline August 12

No late blight has been reported or confirmed in our region of ND, MN or MB. We have not even had a suspicious sample submitted. Late blight has been reported in potatoes in Box Butte County, NE. The recent hot and dry weather has resulted in conditions unfavorable for late blight. Growers are encouraged to continue to apply protective fungicides for early and late blight control, as weather conditions can change quickly. Morning fog and dew are beginning to appear, and these can contribute to free moisture need for late blight infection. Continue to scout fields for late blight, concentrating in areas that are wet longer such as low areas, near shelterbelts or around pivot wells.
