    Late blight disease, the most destructive and infectious disease affecting tomatoes and Irish potatoes, has been reported this week on tomatoes in a home garden in Beaufort County.
    The diseased plants have been destroyed, but further spread of late blight to other areas of South Carolina is likely if the fungal-like pathogen arrived via spores blown up from Florida. To make matters worse, the cool, cloudy and wet weather in large parts of the state created ideal conditions for escalation.
