Potato Disease Updates

Bob Mulrooney, Extension Plant Pathologist; bobmul@udel.edu

Many of you know that potato acreage in Delaware has been declining, but we are committed to the potato growers to provide disease forecasting for late blight and information on other important potato diseases. Joanne Whalen and I will be providing the late blight forecast again using IPM resources. For those that would like to receive the Potato Disease Update that have not received it in the past, email me at bobmul@udel.edu or leave me a message at 302-831-4865 and give me your name and email address or FAX number. The report will use weather data for a potato field along Rt 9 in the Little Creek/Leipsic area in Kent County.
