- Late blight is the main constraints affecting the production and productivity of tomato and potato crops both in terms of quality and quantity. Late blight management is major concern in tropical region which Overview of Epidemiology and management of late blight (Phytophtra infestans (Mont.) on potato and tomato crops needs to tackle yield loss and low quality of tomato and potato production is main constraints. Similarly, traditional way of controlling late blight was increases severity of disease, low production and cause yield losses. Consequently, some pest management researchers have focused their effort on developing alternative inputs synthetic chemicals for controlling pest and diseases. These different alternatives control methods are Fungicides, integrated pest management, biological control and résistance variety. Those control methods are reducing the late blight infestation and promote production. These different alternatives control methods can achieve the objective of management of late blight infestation and yield loss. These controls of late blight require further a greater understanding the epidemiology, interactions among plants, and the environment.
