Lacey, J. 1967. The role of water in the spread of Phytophthora infestans in the potato crop. Annals of Applied Biology - AAB. 59 (2), pp. 245-255.
During falls of rain before 5% of the haulm was destroyed by blight, most rain water was deposited on soil at the bottom of the ridge, and least at the top in crops of King Edward, Majestic, and Up‐to‐Date potatoes. Afterwards less water was trapped half way up the side of the ridge than above or below. Water was also channelled down the stems and, while these were upright, was deposited in the channel often formed around the stem bases by wind movement. Fewer than 500 sporangia per ml. were seen in water collected when blight was present in the crop.
