Identify, manage verticillium wilt through the latest 'Focus on Potato' webcast
Verticillium wilt can be found in all major potato-producing regions of the U.S. and is responsible for yield losses through a reduction in tuber size and quality.
In a recent Focus on Potato presentation, titled “Verticillium Wilt: Potato Early Dying,” Dennis Johnson, Extension plant pathologist at Washington State University, provides an overview of verticillium wilt of potato.
This webcast will help growers, consultants, and applied researchers to better understand the origin, development, and management of the disease. The presentation offers:
Representative color images of disease symptoms;
Disease management strategies;
A description of the disease cycle and how it develops in potatoes and fields;
A discussion of the differences between Verticillium Wilt and potato early dying.
This 20-minute presentation is open access through Sept. 30.
