The article reports on the blight testing conducted by Syngenta which found higher levels of resistance to phenylamide blight fungicides. The results led Syngenta to temporarily reduce the number of Fubol Gold applications recommended during rapid canopy growth to one. The blue-13 A2 strain was found to be the dominant blight strain in the UK population, when 82 percent of blight population was the A2 type. But the Syngenta findings do not necessarily mean all blue-13 A2 blight is resistant.
