Blightline August 31

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.
