Webcast covers seed potato production

Successful early generation seed production depends on very close monitoring for pests, diseases, and variety mixtures.

The latest Focus on Potato presentation, titled "Early Generation Seed Potato Production" by Amy Charkowski, Ph.D., associate professor of plant pathology at the University of Wisconsin, will help users understand the fundamentals of early generation seed potato production from tissue culture to minituber production.

By the end of the presentation, users will understand the process of producing a large crop of potato tubers from a single disease-tested tissue culture plantlet and should be able to use this knowledge to help evaluate the health of a seed potato crop.

This 14-minute presentation is open access through March 31 and can be viewed at

Focus on Potato is a publication of the Plant Management Network (, a nonprofit online publisher whose mission is to enhance the health, management, and production of agricultural and horticultural crops. It achieves this mission through its applied, science-based resources, like Focus on Potato. PMN is also a partner of more than 80 other organizations, which include universities, nonprofits, and agribusinesses.
