Fight Against Blight

3 May 2018

The AHDB Potatoes 'Fight against Blight' (FAB) service has been reporting blight alerts since 2008. This information is collected on a voluntary basis by Blight Scouts drawn from members of the industry who are routinely walking potato fields during the season. The samples that the Scouts send in for analysis are also used for the much-publicised work on mating types.
