We usually get Septora leaf spot around here , this year has been cool and wet, the tomato plants are about a month behind in their growth. I usually only spray 2x a year and it wasn't very effective. This year I made a point of spraying every two weeks and that seemed to do the trick. No blight on my tomatoes or potatoes but on neighbouring garnens they are infected.
I rely on rain which it is doing now. Its a great year for onions and taters. one variety of taters is starting to go yellow and die back. I dug a few just to see how they are doing and they are huge :D It will be at least 3 weeks before I take them out, I might need a high hoe to lift them :lol:

I don't think you're supposed to use Daconil in the UK except on non-domestic turf. From your report it seems to work even when your crops are challenged by nearby inefections.
GOS, yeah!!!
