Dickeya: A Scottish, UK and European Perspective - Focus on Potato

Dickeya: A Scottish, UK and European Perspective - Focus on Potato

Blackleg, a disease that has had little impact on potato production in North America over the years is showing worrying signs in recent times that it’s on the move. It’s a disease that has plagued potato production in Europe for decades and can be caused by a number of different bacteria Dickeya and Pectobacterium species. Potatoes producers up and down the East Coast are rightly concerned and this presentation should give practitioners and growers an overview of the European experience of the disease, update them on ongoing research and explain what the European authorities and industry are doing to combat the problem. By the end of this presentation, the practitioner should have a better understanding of the disease, the pathogens involved and current advice on disease management practice.

Integrated Late Blight Management  - Focus on Potato

Integrated Late Blight Management - Focus on Potato

Late blight is a potentially destructive disease of potato and tomato crops worldwide. While the disease has been studied by many for over a century, changes within the Phytophthora infestans pathogen population have required further in depth investigation for management. From 2009 to the current, a group of newly identified genotypes/clonal lineages/strains of the pathogen were identified, with US-23 becoming most predominant in both tomato and potato production areas of the continental U.S. This presentation will offer new information on the characterization of US-23 and other newer clonal lineages as it pertains to pathogen persistence and management. Further, a process for integrated late blight management, established for Wisconsin, will be shared to aid practitioners in understanding critical concepts of the pathogen and fungicides to enhance overall disease management.

Understanding and Managing Blemish Problems in Fresh Market Potato

Understanding and Managing Blemish Problems in Fresh Market Potato

Blemishes are a big problem fresh market potato growers often face. They can cause 15% or more of potatoes to be culled or cause rejected loads. Smooth-skinned tubers in particular are especially vulnerable to blemishes because they are easily observed. This work evaluated blemishes on tubers from a survey of potatoes collected from potato growers, and evaluated the effects of fungicides on blemishes.
