Late blight discovered in SW Michigan
A late blight outbreak was reported and has been confirmed in St. Joseph county. So far a single outbreak has been confirmed in a field near Sturgis. With the thunder storms and heavy rains that have swept across the state in recent days it is important to be extra vigilant when scouting fields for late blight. Particular attention should be paid to pivot tracks and other such lanes created by farm machinery. For further information on measures that should be taken when late blight is observed refer to the Late Blight extension bulletin. This bulletin is also available as a high quality downloadable .pdf file.
