Announcements

Late Blight Spreading Across WNY Counties

7/19/17 - Late blight (LB) was confirmed in Livingston County on potato this week (the genotype is still being determined). The sample from Erie County from last week was determined to be US-23 which is sensitive to metalaxyl. All of Western NY is at risk for Late Blight infection. Severity values continue build at all stations. The frequent and continuing rainfall has been extremely favorable for the development of LB. Scout fields twice a week. All tomato and potato growers, conventional and organic, should be applying a protectant fungicides and monitoring the DSS to determine spray intervals. Remember to rotate fungicide FRAC groups and use contact fungicides in your program to minimize the chances of fungicides resistance.

If late blight is suspected act immediately! Under favorable environmental conditions late blight develops very rapidly and can spread many miles in a short period. Please take a sample for isolate identification. It is very important to track disease movement. Contact CCE Cornell Vegetable Program Specialists for assistance.

Cucurbit Downy Mildew Confirmed in WNY

Cucurbit downy mildew has been confirmed in Erie County. There have also been confirmed reports from 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 about the disease, watch our new video Better Know a Pest: Downy Mildew or contact Robert Hadad or Darcy Telenko.

Better Know a Pest Video Series

The CCE Cornell Vegetable Program has created 3 new, short videos about common vegetable pests: flea beetlesswede midge, and downy mildew. The videos are part of a series called Better Know a Pest. Watch for more videos as the season progresses.
