Potato Blight Q
« on: June 26, 2011, 20:20 »
Hi all

Just looing at some potato blight pictures on google and it looks like it strikes right through the leaf, ie its on both sides?

http://www.dgsgardening.btinternet.co.uk/potato.htm

If I on have blight looking spots on one side of the leaves is it probably something else?

I don't know the answer to your question, but I would think that if you have blight that it would develop on both sides of the leaves pretty quickly.

Thanks for the link on blight. Very informative. I did not know that commercial potatoes are sprayed with paraquat.

Paraquat was banned 4 years ago - that must be out of date information.
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

Do you not worry, Mattie, blight spreads nicely overtime from anussuming shadows on the leaves into a nice, messy rot of a whole plant. ;)

Spots on one side might be another thing though. It's hard to say.
