I'm away and I hope my potatoes didn't get it. Would the west kerry area be affected.

Had held off spraying my potatoes as mostly escaped last year. Noticed some blight on my early varieties yesterday and cut off the haulms as they were sown at end of March and were of good size.

Sprayed my other 2 batches which are main crop rooster, mayan gold and king edward and some early varieties of sharpes express, duke of york which I got half price and sowed in Mid May and which appear to be doing well even with the late start.
