Potato Pest Management Seminar: Fusarium dry rot, Rhizoctonia canker and black scurf

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Miller Research in Idaho will not be holding its annual Potato Pest Management Meeting in person. Instead, they will be having four 1-hour virtual seminars, discussing four different topics related to potato disease management.

In the first of these seminars – tomorrow, February 16, 2021 – Dr. Jeff Miller will discuss the susceptibility of different cultivars to Fusarium dry rot and review best management practices for avoiding dry rot in seed and at harvest. Dr. James Woodhall from the University of Idaho will join him to talk about different anastomosis groups of Rhizoctonia and we will talk about the results of recent fungicide trials for managing Rhizoctonia canker and black scurf.

One ISDA pesticide recertification credit and one CCA (PM) have been awarded.

The seminar will be live from 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm MST. To register for this session, click on the link below. You will be taken to a page where you need to enter your name and email address.
