SummarySeveral fungicides were compared for control of late blight of potatoes at Hastings, Florida, during a six-year period. Percentage foliage killed by late blight, weight of tubers produced and percentage of those affected with the disease in the treated and nontreated plots were used in evaluating the fungicides.In 1949 when the disease killed all non-treated plants 79 days from planting. Dithane D14-ZnSO4 and Parzate liquid-ZnSO4 sprays gave about the same degree of control. They were… Expand

Metalaxyl and other fungicides for control ofPhytophthora infestans on potato in northwest Washington State
In northwest Washington State, fungicidal control of late blight caused byPhytophthora infestons was evaluated for three years and the possibility that metalaxyl applied to foliage is effective in late blight control only when washed into the soil by rainfall or irrigation for uptake by roots is discussed.
