Met Éireann: Potato blight warning in place until next week

Met Éireann has said that a Status Yellow warning for potato blight is set to remain in place for Ireland until next week. The national forecaster noted that weather conditions conducive to the spread of the disease will remain across many parts of Ireland through to Tuesday (September 13).

As Aisling O’Brien reports for Agriland, growers are advised that opportunities for spraying will be limited today and on Friday.

However, Met Éireann said that there should be good chances to spray plants during Saturday. The warning is set to remain in place until 1:00p.m on Tuesday.
