Late blight is the most destructive of all potato disease and responsible for the Irish Famine in the middle of the 19 th century. It affects both potato foliage in the field and tuber in the storage which can absolutely destroy a crop, producing a 100% crop loss. The pathogen ( Phyhtophthora infestans ) have different mechanisms of survival and two infection phases in its life cycle. It requires two mating types, A1 and A2 to produce a sexual spore known as oospore. The spores are carried by…

Late blight of potato and its management through the application of different fungicides and organic amendments: a review
TLDR
The significance of late blight of potato and controlling strategies adopted for minimizing yield losses incurred by this disease by the application of synthetic fungicides and different organic amendments are reviewed.
STATUS AND MANAGEMENT OPTIONS OF PHYTOPHTHORA INFESTANS , A CAUSAL AGENT OF THE LATE BLIGHT DISEASE OF TOMATO , IN TROPICAL AFRICA
Late blight disease caused by Phytophthora infestans (Mont.) de Bary is a serious challenge in tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L or Lycopersicon esculentum L) production worldwide. In tropical Africa,
Integrated Potato (Solanum Tuberosum L.) Late Blight (Phytophthora Infestans) Disease Management in Ethiopia
TLDR
Major fungal and bacterial diseases affecting potato crop are reviewed here with respect to their identification, symptoms on potato plants or tubers, nature of the pathogen involved, epidemiology, control measures etc.
The fight against Phytophthora infestans to keep potato plants healthy
TLDR
This bachelor thesis will present detailed information about late blight and how to control it and any recommendations for a better control of late blight.
Severity of Tomato Late Blight Caused by Phytophthora infestans (Mont.) De Bary in Kashmir
TLDR
Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill) is one of the most important vegetable crops of the family Solanaceae and is also most commonly grown vegetable in the kitchen gardens and therefore, called as poor man's orange.
Diagnosis of management of bacterial wilt and late blight in potato in Ethiopia: A systems thinking perspective
Abstract Potato is one of the most important food crops for smallholder farmers in the Ethiopian highlands. Diseases, particularly bacterial wilt (caused by Ralstonia solanacearum) and late blight
Effect of planting time and fungicide application frequency on severity of late blight (Phytophthora infestans), yield and yield components of potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) at Kulumsa, Southeast Ethiopia
TLDR
The combination of early planting in June and twice fungicide application gave the optimum results in the study area, with early planting producing significantly higher number of marketable and total tuber numbers per hill, whereas delay planting in July resulted in higherNumber of unmarketable tubers per hill.
EFFICACY OF TWO FUNGICIDES FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF PHYTOPHTHORA INFESTANS ON POTATO THROUGH DIFFERENT APPLICATIONS METHODS ADOPTED IN CONTROLLED CONDITIONS
In an attempt to develop an alternative strategy, it is interesting to assess the best method of fungicide application, the position of the leaflets treated and the effect of a reduced dose on the
Rosmarinic acid ameliorates the negative effects of salinity in in vitro-regenerated potato explants (Solanum tuberosum L.)
Salinity causes massive loss of economic crops due to the build-up of toxic salts in shoot. Rosmarinic acid (RA) has been known to prevent the inevitable damage to vital biological molecules under
Global invasive Cochliobolus species: cohort of destroyers with implications in food losses and insecurity in the twenty-first century
TLDR
A comprehensive analysis of the invasive Cochliobolus species distribution and diversity, evolving pathogenicity, persistent diseases, threats and epidemics, consequences on food crops production and increasing global food insecurity issues is provided.

Effect of Integrating Planting Time, Fungicide Application and Host Resistance on Potato Late Blight Development in South‐western Uganda
TLDR
This study demonstrated that susceptible varieties can be successfully grown in the region if well-timed fungicide sprays are administered and integration of resistant cultivars in late blight management assisted in reducing the amount and frequency of fungicide applications.
Potato late blight in developing countries
Potato is the fastest growing major crop in the developing world with important economic impact on many resource-poor farming families. Many factors limit production and profitability, with hundreds
Epidemiology and population dynamics of Phytophthora infestans in Sub-Saharan Africa: Progress and constraints
TLDR
Data on the low incidence of tuber blight and the lack of evidence for potato seed-borne infection suggests that tuber blight is not a significant source of primary inoculum in the tropics, while studies are underway to quantify general resistance of potato varieties as well as to monitor the significance of fungal population deviations in the region.
Potato late blight.
TLDR
Inoculation experiments by de Bary provided evidence for the causal role of this pathogen in the disease and contributed to the later acceptance of Pasteur’s more general germ theory of disease.
Late blight of potato and tomato
TLDR
Monitoring for timely detection of early symptoms and knowledge of weather conditions are crucial for employing effective disease management practices.
Management of Late Blight (Phytophthora infestans) of Potato (Solanum tuberosum) through Potato Cultivars and Fungicides in Hararghe Highlands, Ethiopia
Late blight caused by Phytophthora infestans (Mont) de Barry) is widespread, serious and devastating disease of potato in the world also in Ethiopia. Field experiments were conducted at Haramaya
Reactions of some potato genotypes to late blight in Cameroon
TLDR
The fifth late blight reading (LB5) was more related to yield than the later readings suggesting that the damage caused by the disease at an earlier stage of plant development contributed most to yield reductions.
Efficacy of Reduced Dose of Fungicide Sprays in the Management of Late Blight (Phytophthora infestans) Disease on Selected Potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) Varieties Haramaya, Eastern Ethiopia
TLDR
This study revealed that reduced rates of Ridomil resulted in better management of potato late blight, however, further studies at different agro-ecological zones of the country are important for preference of potato varieties and specific rates of ridomil as opposed to approval of the blanket recommendation of the manufacturer.
Metalaxyl resistance, mating type and pathogenicity of Phytophthora infestans in Uganda
TLDR
The majority of the P. infestans isolates recovered from late blight infected samples collected from different areas of Uganda were highly resistant to metalaxyl and produced oospores by either mating or selfing or both.
Importance of potato late blight in Argentina, and the effect of fungicide treatments on yield increments over twenty years
TLDR
Under the climatic conditions of southwest Argentina, total crop loss on non fungicide treated plots was not obtained in 20 years; therefore late blight was not a completely limiting factor for potato production, however, fungicide treatment appears to be essential to obtain high quality yields.
