A total of 195 isolates of Phytophthora infestans were collected from late blight-diseased potatoes grown in several localities in the Czech Republic during the years 2007–2008. The isolates were analysed for mating type using the pairing test, CAPS marker assays and PCR assays. Of the 195 tested isolates, 28% were of the A1 mating type and 75% corresponded to the A2 mating type. Furthermore, oospores of P. infestans were microscopically detected in leaf samples from one locality.Keywords:
