A new potato alert was posted to

"Potato psyllids continue to be found across several sites being monitored by the University of Idaho. Numbers are similar to last week. Across the UI sites, psyllids have been found primarily in Magic Valley fields; however, crop consultants have submitted potato psyllid samples from Canyon and Elmore counties. Some of the psyllids found in previous weeks continue to test positive for liberibacter, the causal agent of ZC. The three psyllids that were found in Bonneville county all tested negative, though.

"See below to view a table that details where (by county) and when potato psyllids have been found so far during this season in Idaho.

"We continue to encourage vigorous scouting efforts. Refer to the sites below for guidance on scouting and IPM programs for potato psyllids and to view trap captures in Idaho so far over the season."
