Abstract

Field experiments were carried out in Denmark, United Kingdom and the Netherlands in 2009, 2010 and 2011. Thus nine experiments were carried out to compare the effectiveness against tuber blight by measuring the protection of leaves and tubers against infection by late blight caused by application of a fungicide in a standard 7-day spray schedule. This report describes the analysis of the efficacy of fungicides to control potato tuber blight during the second part of the season. A tuber blight rating was established for five fungicides.
