Blight hotlines to provide help for potato growers

Syngenta and prominent potato disease researchers from universities across the country will continue their partnerships on potato blight hotlines for 2018. Growers in Idaho, Michigan, North Dakota, Oregon and Washington can call the hotlines for access to the latest updates on local disease pressures.

“These researchers are valuable sources of information for growers in their areas,” said Kiran Shetty, Syngenta technical development lead.

To get notified when the hotline is updated, growers can subscribe to receive text message alerts by texting state-specific codes to 97063.
