Canada: Late blight confirmed in Alberta

In general, in Alberta, late blight occurs infrequently, but can have devastating impacts in the years when it reaches epidemic levels. As the 2014 season starts to head towards the finish line, late blight has been confirmed in parts of Alberta. “Therefore, it’s recommended that all growers of potato or tomato (commercial or home garden) take specific steps to prevent the carryover of disease into future years, as a number of valuable crop industries in Alberta could be impacted by repeated outbreaks.”
