Northern Ireland potato blight warning issued

THE Agri-Food and Biosciences Institute and CAFRE, Greenmount Campus have issued a further potato blight warning.

Infection periods were recorded between 12th and 14th August across Northern Ireland.

Growers should take every opportunity to protect crops with approved fungicides at the intervals recommended for high to severe risk conditions and should ensure that protection is maintained until the end of the season when no green haulm remains.

More information on controlling blight and on current blight risk is available from DARD Blight-Net via the DARD website.
