Mildew threatens potato crops in France

Mildew is a big threat to potato farmers in the North of France at the moment due to climate conditions favourable to the disease. “Humidity and temperatures of 20°C favour its spreading.  We have to treat the fields every 3-4 days to avoid the spores reaching the tubers” says Nicolas Courtois.  If this happened the potatoes would be unfit for consumption.
