A potato-blight warning is in place for the entire country on Saturday, starting in the south and west before moving countrywide, according to Met Éireann. Bernie Commins reports for Agriland that the national weather service has issued an advisory stating that Munster, Connacht, and south Leinster are to be impacted by weather conditions that are conducive to the spread of potato blight on Saturday, July 3.
These conditions will spread to the rest of Leinster and Ulster on Sunday and Monday (July 4-5). However, there will be good opportunities for spraying over the coming days – at least up to and including Thursday – with just some showers expected, and mostly light winds. Spraying opportunities will become limited after that.
