Miller Research in Idaho hosted a virtual seminar February 18 on the management of powdery scab in potato production, including the value of soil testing, selecting resistant varieties, and the use of fungicides for control.
Dr Jeff Miller and colleagues at the University of Idaho, Drs. James Woodall and Nora Olsen discussed the relationship between powdery scab and potato mop-top virus (PMTV), as well as the latest information in pathogen detection technology and the development of PMTV symptoms in storage.
