UK: Guidance on reduced fluazinam sensitivity in late blight populations

Image result for late blight potatoIn July 2017, AHDB notified its blight network about reports of the spread of EU_37_A2, a strain of blight first discovered in the Netherlands in 2013 which has shown reduced sensitivity to Fluazinam, a common fungicide used to tackle blight and other diseases. As a result, you can find the two below links to guidelines on how the potato industry should respond to reduced fluazinam sensitivity in late blight populations, which derives from research funded by the AHDB and carried about by SRUC and ADAS. For a full report please use the following – Guidance on how the potato industry should respond to reduced fluazinam sensitivity in late blight populations​. For a summary of the report please use the following – Guidance on reduced fluazinam sensitivity in late blight populations: summary.
