Potato Pink Eye

This past year there were numerous cases of Pink eye. This is a physiological disorder most consistently caused by excessive moisture, warm temperatures, loss of foliar canopy and soil compaction. This syndrome gets its name because it can be expressed as a pinkish color and raised areas on the tuber surface. In some cases, Pink eye can develop into corky areas on the tuber skin, often described as elephant hide or corky patch.
