US: Fungicides for late blight control in potatoes

Due to the recall of much of the chlorothalonil supply for 2014, potato growers have a dilemma about what to base their late blight control programs on. Michigan State University Extension reports that many growers have turned to Elixir fungicide (mancozeb + chlorothalonil, 62.5 +12.5 percent, respectively from United Phosphorus) as the base control for potato late blight.
