Wisconsin Vegetable Crop Update for June 7

Amanda Gevens, Associate Professor & Extension Specialist, Potato & Vegetable Pathology, Plant Pathology Department

  • potato production updates
  • Russet Burbank injury
  • Disease forecasting for early and late blight of potato
  • Hop downy and powdery mildew

Be on the look out for downy mildews in other crops.  Environmental conditions which favor downy mildew in one crop typically favor it in others, even though the pathogens are unique to specific crop groupings.  For example, last year we reported hop and basil downy mildew in the same week (around this time in June).
