6.24.14 First late blight report in NY

The first late blight reported in NY and the Northeast was found in a commercial potato field in Suffolk county, NY on June 20th.  It’s not clear at this point whether the infection originated from seed or through aerial spore dispersal.  Scout potato and tomato fields carefully (see late blight scouting and imitators video under resources in the right side menu) for late blight and report any finds on the web site.  If you haven’t already done so, sign up on for email or text alerts when late blight is found in your area.
