Focus on Potato: Epidemiology and Management of Potato White Mold

Focus on Potato: Epidemiology and Management of Potato White Mold

White mold is one of several important foliar diseases that potentially affect potato production due to reductions in tuber yield and increase disease management costs. This presentation will help potato growers and field managers in potato production regions understand how the fungus that cause white mold colonizes host substrates to initiate disease, infects healthy potato foliage, and is most efficiently managed. Environmental and host factors that affect disease spread and progression will be discussed. The rolls of sclerotia in overwintering of the pathogen, of apothecia and ascospores in disease spread, senescent host tissue for initial infection and how they all relate to disease management will be presented. By the end of the presentation, those that listen will know more about the epidemiology of white mold and will be well equipped to manage the disease.

2017 Foundation and CCIA Seed Prices

The NDAES Seed Pricing Committee met October 28, 2016 to establish the 2017 price structure for Foundation seed. Cost of production and Estimated Year-end Minneapolis Cash Grain Market Price is based upon projections made by NDSU Extension Ag Economists at the time of the pricing committee meeting. This approach should provide stability in projecting resources, reduce the need for yearly minor adjustments and be consistent with our goal of providing a cost recovery service. Prices for some specialty crops are based upon cost of Foundation seed production. 2016 Fall Prices: Prices for fall crops were established by the Seed Pricing Committee on August 9th, 2016.

Focus on Potato: Late Blight Management Under Semi-Arid Conditions

Focus on Potato: Late Blight Management Under Semi-Arid Conditions

Late blight has the potential to be one of the most destructive diseases for potato growers. Late blight is influenced largely by environmental conditions. Management under semi-arid conditions can be quite different than managing the disease under wet, humid conditions. This presentation outlines effective control practices for growers who raise potatoes under semi-arid conditions. This presentation addresses the effect of irrigation on late blight, fungicide efficacy against late blight, the impact of weather, timing of fungicide applications, the effect of application method on fungicide residue, and the role of post-harvest products.
