On March 29, Jeff Miller from Miller Research in Idaho will present a free webinar on “Field Identification of Common Foliar Diseases of Potatoes”. This webinar is organized in collaboration with the Ontario Potato Board. It starts at 11:00 a.m. and finishes at 11:45 a.m. ET.
Jeff will discuss:
• Correct identification of potato diseases
• Early detection of diseases and where they are most likely to occur
• How to distinguish the most common foliar diseases from their look-alike disorders
• This information should allow growers to better time pesticide applications and to apply pesticides only when necessary
This webinar is an excellent source of information for growers, potato scouts, crop advisors, extension personnel, researchers and anyone interested in Integrated Pest Management of Potatoes. This webinar is sponsored by Syngenta and hosted by Potatoes in Canada.
