Ontario Potato Crops in Need of Rain


Ontario potato crops are looking good overall but are in need of a good rain, according to a June 17 update from the Ontario Potato Board’s Eugenia Banks.

Colorado potato beetles are emerging with insectile control needed for them, Banks notes. Flea beetles have also been reported in some fields, however there have been no signs of early blight yet.

Late blight spore traps are being installed in the Melancthon and Alliston areas.
