Research

On commercial crops, periodic applications of fungicides offer the only available control of early and late blight. There are no real data on potential yield losses caused by early blight under Argentine conditions. Therefore, the purpose of this work was to determine the effect of fungicide treatment on the tuber yield of early blight-infected plants. We also present the results of a ten-year study on the effect of fungicide treatment on the tuber yield of late blight-infected plants under Argentine conditions.
