    • Late blight management in home and community gardens: benefits transcend Community/Ag boundaries 

      Seaman, Abby; Brewer, Lori; Lamb, Elizabeth (New York State IPM Program, 2014)
      Late blight is a serious plant disease that affects both home gardeners and farmers. Because infected plants produce huge quantities of spores that spread the disease, accurate disease identification and appropriate ...
    • Late Blight Network 

      Seaman, Abby (New York State IPM Program, 2010)
      Late blight is a serious disease of tomato and potato which, if not controlled, has the potential to destroy entire fields in as little as two weeks when weather conditions are favorable. Since 1993, Extension faculty and ...
    • Late Blight Network 

      Seaman, A. (New York State IPM Program, 2009)
      Late blight is a serious disease of tomato and potato which, if not controlled, has the potential to destroy entire fields in as little as two weeks when weather conditions are favorable.  Since 1993, Extension faculty and ...
    • Late Blight of Potatoes and Tomatoes 

      Frye, William E. (New York State IPM Program, 1998)
      Late blight of potatoes and tomatoes, the disease that was responsible for the Irish potato famine in the mid-nineteenth century, is caused by the fungus-like oomycete pathogen Phytophthora infestans. It can infect and ...
    • Late Blight: Evaluating and Purchasing Seed Tubers 

      Loria, Rosemary; Slack, Steven A. (New York State IPM Program, 1995)
      Most seedborne pathogens can cause substantial reductions in yield or quality in the subsequent crop. However, some diseases such as late blight, ring rot and leafroll have the potential to spread quickly through the crop ...
    • Late Cenozoic tectonics of the Middle Atlas Mountains, Morocco: Continental deformation in the diffuse western Mediterranean plate boundary 

      Gomez, Francisco (Cornell University, 1999)
      The Atlas Mountains of North Africa, located in the African foreland of the Alpine mountain belts, comprise a 2,000 km long Cenozoic mountain chain whose development was guided by older Mesozoic rift structures. This ...
    • Late Cenozoic uplift along the northern Dead Sea transform in Lebanon and Syria 

      Gomez, F.; Khawlie, M.; Tabet, C.; Darkal, A.; Khair, K.; Barazangi, M. (Elsevier Science, 2006)
      Evidence of long-term, late Cenozoic uplift, as well as strike-slip faulting, is revealed by topographic and geological features along the northern 500 km of the Dead Sea fault system (DSFS)- the transform boundary between ...
    • Late Cenozoic Volcanism in the Hövsgöl Rift Basin: Source, Genesis, and Evolution of Intraplate Volcanism in Mongolia 

      Zuza, Andrew V. (2011-06-30)
      Diffuse, intraplate volcanic deposits are prevalent throughout Mongolia. This study sought to examine Late Cenozoic lavas (9.5-17.1 Ma) from the Hövsgöl rift basin in order to better understand their source, genesis, and ...
