Abstract
The appearance of the potato blight small (Phytophthora; nestans) in Kenya in 1940 struck a serious blow to the potato crop. In a wet season damage can be severe, especially among the more susceptible varieties. The loss which may ensue i~ dependent, to a great extent, on the state of the crop when the attack develops. As the tops are mainly affected, total loss of crop rarely follows unless severe blight attacks them before marketable tubers are formed.
