Phytophthora infestons (Mont.) de Bary, the causal agent of potato late blight, was first discovered in Europe in 1845. Until 1980, only Al mating type isolates were known to occur in Europe. The absence of A2 mating type isolates restrained the fungus from sexual reproduction. In the early 1980s, A2 mating type isolates were discovered in Europe. Presumably a new introduction of P. infestons isolates originating from Mexico had taken place. In this chapter, the significance of the presence of… CONTINUE READING
