The Plant Management Network (PMN) has released in November a new presentation entitled “Late Blight Management Under Semi-Arid Conditions” to help potato growers recognize pathogen hosts, favorable disease conditions, and utilize effective control practices.    

Late blight of potato can spread very quickly and has the potential to be extremely destructive if managed improperly, Miller explains.

The webcast, developed by Jeff Miller, President and CEO of Miller Research, outlines effective control practices and stresses the importance of:

  • Starting fungicide programs early in the season
  • Maintaining a consistent application schedule up to harvest
  • Timing applications with environmental conditions

The 27-minute presentation will remain open access in the Focus on Potato webcast resource.

The Plant Management Network is a nonprofit publisher of applied, science-based resources that help enhance the health, management, and production of agricultural and horticultural crops. Partnering with over 80 universities, nonprofits, and agribusinesses, PMN provides materials covering a wide range of crops and contemporary issues through the online PMN Education Center.
