Canadian potato growers and scouts can now download scouting resources

Growers and scouts in Canada can now download three scouting resources that will help them know when and what to scout for in potato fields.

On May 21 and 28, 2020, Potatoes in Canada hosted a webinar series with Dr Eugenia Banks, potato specialist with the Ontario Potato Board, on how to scout pests, diseases and physiological disorders in potatoes. In addition to the webinar series, Banks has made her scouting resources available as PDFs for download.

•   Potato disease calendar: provides a timeline of when to scout for which diseases.
•   Potato insect calendar: provides a timeline of when to scout for which pests.
•   Scouting Guide: provides general best practices for scouting potato fields and an in-depth look on specific issues, including insect threshold numbers.

Go here to download the resources.
