Late Blight in Virginia

Today we identified late blight on tomato plants on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. The plants had recently been sprayed and were not sporulating actively. Growers should scout and take preventative measures. Hopefully drier conditions will suppress spread of the disease. Univ. of Maryland reports late blight of tomato in Montgomery Co., MD. Growers in the northern parts of the state should be alert as well.
