Spud Scoop August 22, 2020

Welcome to Spud Scoop for the week ending on August 22, 2020. No late blight has been found in ND, MN or MB. Late blight spores were found in Cavalier, ND and in Little Falls and Rice, MN. Stay diligent with fungicide protection and scouting fields. We had another big week for aphid vector numbers, with very similar numbers to last week. A total of 287 vectors were recovered from 15 sites reporting. In fact, with this week's catch, we've caught up with 2019 and are pretty much at the same levels, but with different levels at different sites.
