Blightline Sep 9, 2019

Late blight is NOT reported in ND, MN or MB. Some fields have been vine-killed or harvested already, but it is important to monitor fields that remain green for the next week or two. Late season outbreaks can result in tuber infection and secondary soft rot in the field or storage. Stay on the lookout for late season disease, especially near pivots, shelterbelts and other areas that stay wet for longer periods. It has been a good season so far with no late blight. This will be the last regularly scheduled NDSU Potato Blightline for 2019 unless late blight is found. We anticipate the Blightline continuing in 2020.
