Late blight caused by Phytophthora infestans is the most important foliar disease in the cultivation of potatoes. It is important to use fungicides that effectively protect leaves against this disease. A whole range of fungicides was or became registered in the last five years.
New fungicides to control late blight will enter the market in future. Each fungicide has its own mode of action and efficacies and therefore has specific characteristics. To evaluate each characteristic a Euroblight table was set up to get an overview of the value of each characteristic.
