  A laboratory trial was conducted to test the efficacy of OxiDate™ in controlling the late blight of potato and tomato fungus, Phytophthora infestans. In addition to the control, three OxiDate concentrations (1:150, 1:100 and 1:50 of OxiDate to water) were used in this study. A total of 17 different late blight isolates collected from New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Manitoba and Quebec (Canada) were subjected to various concentrations of OxiDate in a replicated experiment using a 2-way Completely Randomized Design. Growth of all isolates was inhibited when the 1:50 OxiDate concentration was used. At the 1:100 concentration, growth of 94.1% of the late blight isolates used was completely inhibited. At the lowest concentration of 1:150 OxiDate, the growth of 76.5% of the isolates tested was completely inhibited. The results of this study suggest that OxiDate has the potential to be used in preventing the occurrence of late blight in potato tubers if applied on potatoes in the proper manner after harvest and prior to storage.

  Potato storage trials were conducted in 2002 and 2003 in New Brunswick, Canada. Two potato cultivars, Russet Burbank and Dark Red Norland were used. Potato samples in mesh bags (9 kg each) untreated with sprout inhibitors were placed in wooden pallet boxes commonly used in potato storages. A wooden divider divided each box into two portions. Six samples of Russet Burbank were placed in one portion and 6 samples of Dark Red Norland were placed in the other portion. Two treatments (control and OxiDate 1:50) were replicated three times for each cultivar. Using a fogging system, treatments were applied daily for 2 weeks (8 h/day) and then once (8 h) per week for the duration of the experiment. Results indicated that OxiDate treatment helped reduce the level of early blight severity in storage by up to 10.4% over 16 weeks when compared to the untreated check.
