Met Éireann issues potato blight warning for all of Ireland

Met Éireann has today (Wednesday, July 20) issued a Status Yellow warning for potato blight for the entire country. As Aisling O’Brien reports for Agriland, the national forecaster stated that weather conditions conducive to the spread of the disease will develop over most of the country from Friday night (July 22) to Sunday afternoon (July 24).

Met Éireann added that there will be good opportunities to spray crops until Friday evening. The warning is currently set to remain in place until 3:00p.m on Sunday.

Around €5 million is spent on fungicides annually in Ireland to mitigate the impacts of potato blight.
