Late blight continues to result in major losses and a considerable use of pesticides in potato farming. Research is under pressure to improve existing control strategies and develop new solutions. A combination of these approach- es could enable potato farming in Switzerland to generate greater yields and become more ecological.

This fact sheet presents a selection of possible approaches that were discussed at the symposium "Kraut- und Knollenfäule im Kartoffelbau – Neue Lösungen für ein altes Problem" held on November 30, 2016, organized by the Forum for Genetic Research.
