im growing potatoes for the first time this year and im somewhat confused about spraying . Do you allways spray potatoes or just when you see some form of disease? I have homeguard , kerrs pinks & roosters and at the moment all seem to be doing well with good healthy looking foliage

No need to spray unless you hear blight warnings on the radio broadcast by Met Eireann.....also on their website. And some people on the forum don't even spray then.
