A warning to gardeners: late blight is back. The fungus has been found on a tomato plant at a home garden in Huntington.
The disease primarily targets tomatoes and potatoes. We saw a major outbreak in our region in 2009 during a wet, cool spring.
Here's what to look out for: lesions on leaves, mold, and rapid browning or dieback. Late blight is easily spread.
Ann Hazelrigg of the University of Vermont appeared on the Channel 3 News at 6 p.m. to discuss late blight. Watch the video for more.
