Canada: Fusarium lurks in potatoes, warns crop pathologist

Mike Harding doesn’t usually favour sensational titles for the presentations he gives to farmers.
 On March 1, the Alberta Agriculture crop pathologist made an exception with his talk to potato growers on Fusarium: The Silent Storage Killer.
 Harding said fusarium in potatoes “flies under the radar” be-cause it can develop slowly in stored product and do major damage before it is noticed.
 “Fusarium species, these are fungi, and they’re present around the world,” he said.
 “They’re oftentimes more serious in potatoes that we try to store for long periods of time.”
