Forecasting Potato/Tomato Late Blight Risk for YOUR Farm

February 29, 2016

Forecasting Potato/Tomato Late Blight Risk for YOUR Farm

Learn how to use the late blight forecast tool on your farm. Participants will set up their personal farm accounts on the Late Blight Decision Support System (DSS) website, defining the location of their farm/fields, and their varieties. Users can sign up for email/text alerts regarding when fungicide sprays are needed. Once basic farm/crop information is in a user's account, they can access DSS reports and input fungicide sprays by smartphone or tablet.

A laptop computer capable of wireless internet access is needed for the workshop. If you need to borrow a laptop or have questions about the workshop or the LB Decision Support System contact Carol MacNeil.

* * * * * This event will be hosted at CCE Ontario County, 480 N Main St in Canandaigua. However, the event will also be broadcast at CCE Erie County, 21 S Grove St, East Aurora, NY 14052.

Spinach Downy Mildew Now in the Northeast

From Meg McGrath, Cornell: Downy mildew has been found recently in spinach at several farms in the northeastern US. This devastating disease has not been confirmed in the region for several years, thankfully as it has been a major production constraint in California. Pathogens causing downy mildew are Oomycetes and thus are related to the late blight pathogen. They are similar in ability to produce an abundance of wind-dispersed spores capable of moving long distances and to not need leaves to be wet to infect (high humidity is sufficient), plus ability to devastate crops.

All growers with spinach should inspect their plants for symptoms promptly NOW and also in spring plantings to catch if there is carry over or new outbreaks. If downy mildew is suspected, please contact your local extension specialist and send an email to Meg McGrath.

It will be CRITICAL that all high tunnel and overwintering spinach crops with downy mildew be destroyed couple weeks before the start of the spring spinach production season in the region to avoid carry over into 2017. Read more


NEW! Pesticide Product Search Online

The NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) Bureau of Pest Management has released a new pesticide product registration database. When visiting the webpage, please select the Products icon on the right side of the page to perform product searches.

This pesticide search database is replacing the Product, Ingredient, and Manufacturer System (PIMS) product database that has been hosted by Cornell University since its inception.

The new search database includes many added features, including site and pest searches. Additionally, updates to the product data and labeling will be reflected instantaneously. 

BMPs for Dickeya in Potato Production

Potato seed tubers harboring Dickeya dianthicola are the only confirmed source of this pathogen. It does not appear to be able to survive in soil (including in crop debris) from one growing season to the next. Consequently, rotating with a non-susceptible crop is not a necessary component of the management program.

Best management practices listed in this PDF, prepared by leading potato experts from the Northeast, are encouraged to minimize potential losses from Dickeya.
