|The Potato Council UK has called for more Blight Scouts to sign up ahead of the onset of its Fight Against Blight campaign 2010.
With a natural decline in the number of Blight Scouts signed up each year, Potato Council blight specialist Gary Collins says there is now a need to recruit new scouts to the monitoring programme.
He said: "We particularly need more Scouts in the East Midlands, East of England, Yorkshire and southern regions."
"Farm fieldsmen, agronomists, advisers, or anyone that crop walks could be suitable to become a Blight Scout and help us monitor the incidences of blight during the course of the season.

Anyone interested in becoming a Blight Scout this season should contact Gary Collins on 07879 676 932, or e-mail
