New Funding!

We received funding from NIFA-Multistate to study

1) trade-offs between CPB and late blight resistance in different potato varieties.

2) plant tolerance to CPB damage and its potential use in agriculture.

This data will allow us to enhance a current late blight Decision Support System with information on CPB-potato variety interactions. We will be able to identify the varietal needs in the NE US, as well as forecasting the timing for fungicide and insecticide applications in potato fields.
