State Potato Crop Escaped Diseases Wisconsin vegetable and field crops came through the 1952 season without too much damage from "•—diseases, according to Earl Wade, plant'"disease specialist at the University of Wisconsin. In fact, diseases were much lighter .than a year ago. \4 Wade 'points out that the v -improved situation was partly because weather conditions were not good ^for diseases and partly because x of increased protection for crops by farmers. He says that potato growers were largely successful in pro - tccting their crops from late blight, a disease that has been very ba'd in past seasons. Recommended sprays and fungicides were used throughout the state. Normal rainfall and fairly high temperatures helped to keep late blight in check. Severe infections occured only in isolated areas where spraying was not carried out.
