Bangor Daily News - 8/12/2011.
By Jen Lynds – Presque Isle: The rainy spring and summer have put a damper on the Aroostook County potato growing season, but the head of the Maine Potato Board said Wednesday that the industry remains optimistic about this year’s crop. Don Flannery, executive director of the board, said that one consequence of the rainy weather has been the discovery of late blight in central Aroostook.

Reuters - 8/12/2011.

Repeated use of the chemical glyphosate, the key ingredient in Roundup herbicide, impacts the root structure of plants, and 15 years of research indicates that the chemical could be causing fungal root disease, said Bob Kremer, a microbiologist with the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Agricultural Research Service.
