VG04016 Celery leaf blight – Poster

The fungus Septoria apiicola is responsible for late blight in celery, and can cause losses of up to 90% without intensive calendar spraying.

This project has devised ways of controlling celery late blight with less spraying and so minimise the costs and hazard to users and the environment.
