Our trial at Henfaes now has dead plots of susceptible varieties (like King Edward and Maris Piper) and growing plots with little or no blight indicating a genotype with substantial resistance. Simon is scoring the percentage of foliage infected within each plot at regular intervals. The trial should be demonstrating differences of resistance/susceptibility for all genotypes in time for our Open Days on 4 and 5 September.
