Potato early dying disease in the spotlight at Canadian Potato Summit

Potato early dying disease, also known as Verticillium wilt, results in early potato maturity and can limit yield by as much as 50 per cent. What can Canadian growers do to protect their spuds?

Mario Tenuta and Dmytro Yevtushenko of the Canadian Potato Early Dying Network (CanPEDNet) will share research updates on this disease during the upcoming Canadian Potato Summit on February 3.

Dr. Tenuta is the NSERC/WGRF/Fertilizer Canada Industrial Research Chair in 4R Nutrient Stewardship and professor of applied soil ecology at the University of Manitoba. Dr. Yevtushenko is the Research Chair in Potato Science at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta.

During the Summit, Tenuta and Yevtushenko will present on CanPEDNet: a Canada-wide network of projects working on PED with growers across the country.
