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.

Announcements

Cucurbit Downy Mildew Confirmed in WNY

Cucurbit downy mildew has been confirmed in Cattaraugus County and southern Ontario County (near Naples). There have also been reports from MI, OH, PA and Ontario Canada. If you're planning on spraying cucumbers to control downy mildew, now is the time to do it!

Characteristic disease symptoms are angular, pale green areas bounded by the leaf veins. They will turn yellow and later necrotic. Under high humidity conditions sporulation will occur on the lower leaf surface. Apply targeted fungicides tank-mixed with protectant fungicides weekly and alternated among available modes of action (FRAC code), starting when there is risk for a specific crop based on forecasting program. Refer to the Cornell Vegetable Guidelines for a complete list of products available. For more information, contact Robert Hadad or Darcy Telenko.

Assisting Western New York Vegetable Growers

Western New York is a national leader in vegetable production and the largest vegetable producing region in the state of New York, contributing an estimated $280 million to the state's economy each year. The region grows a diverse set of crops including tomatoes, potatoes, sweet corn, pumpkins, cabbage and peppers on large acres, and another 50 crops on smaller plantings.

The Cornell Vegetable Program's video, "Meet the Cornell Vegetable Program" provides an introduction to our team of specialists and how we assist vegetable growers throughout the region. We greatly appreciate that several WNY vegetable growers shared their thoughts on what the Cornell Vegetable Program means to them: Paul Fenton, Batavia; Mark Zittel, Eden; and Matt Mortellaro, Elba.
