Earliest Potato Late Blight Season In Memory!
Corcrane: If there is late blight in the are the recommendation is to be very proactive active. Late blight is to potatos what the measles used to be prior to vaccination, it's just devastating.
What are your recommendations for our growers
Corcrane: If you've got late blight anywhere in close proximity to your crops you want to be on a seven day fungicide rotation and you want to rotate your modes of action between some of the standard products that everybody uses. Some that we would have would be TANOS® fungicide, which has a curzate componate to it which has a very good knock down for late bite spors and it has a residual component as well so it has a good residual control but it's also got a really good quick knock down component which is very important to basically stop late blight in its tracks. On top of that you probably want to mix some copper product in with that to give it a drying effect under the canopy.
