In past years I've relied on someone posting blight notices on here - may have been My Potatoes we don't seem to hear of these days - but I'd just like to know if anyone is keeping an eye open for when it's likely? Is Teagasc the body that issues them?

It was indeed my potatoes those Cork residents are so unreliable! I was actually only thinking the very same thing myself only last week, the blight notices I mean. He used to get the notification from the Met Eireann website. If you log into that regularly you will see what they put up. From memory it wasn't that localised, more of a sweeping statement across the country. I just spray every tenth day regardless, at least I know I am covered then.

Thanks. I did eventually get to Met Eireann and found a mild 'Yellow' warning but, as you say, it wasn't area specific. I'll probably get the fleece out this morning (Management instructions) to be on the safe side. It's certainly mild and damp at the moment.
