Late blight confirmed in Ohio

From Sally Miller, Professor of Plant Pathology at Ohio State University:

“Late blight has been confirmed in tomatoes on an organic farm in Harrison County, and a conventional farm in Knox County, OH.  Harrison County is in east/central Ohio, one county west of the Pennsylvania border, and Knox County is in Central Ohio.  This follows confirmations of late blight in potatoes or tomatoes in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Kentucky and New York.  Weather conditions (cool-warm with high moisture – rain or heavy dew) in Ohio have been very favorable for late blight.”
