Potato plants suddenly wilted

Jacqueline Galvin asked 13 years ago
I discovered today that about half my potato plants have shrivelled up and wilted. There is no sign of mould or rot just dry brown crispness. It seems to start with brown crispy patches on the leaves – but it doesn’t look like blight. We had that last year. What is this and what should I do? I hope you can help.

No, it does not look exactly like potato blight. It appears to be spray damage. There may have been weedkiller in the sprayer if blight spray was applied or it drifted onto them.
