Potato webcast covers foliar fungicide applications

Foliar fungicides are a common tool for protecting potatoes from a number of foliar diseases. But like any tool, it’s only useful if used correctly.

Knowing the factors that contribute to the best foliar fungicide application will help to ensure the most protection, for the longest time period, and at the lowest cost.

In the latest Focus on Potato webcast, titled “Chemical Control of Foliar Plant Diseases in Potato: Application of Fungicides,” Phil Hamm, presents information that will help growers, consultants, and other practitioners get the most out of their fungicide applications.

In this talk, Hamm discusses:

Fungicide penetration into the canopy following various application methods;

How much of the material applied remains at the canopy level nearly a week later;

What are the results of repeated applications related to fungicide amount through time;

Why timing of application is important to get the best disease control possible; and

The impact of increasing or decreasing water amounts in the application.

This 49-minute presentation is open access through Dec. 31. This and other presentations can be viewed through the Focus on Potato resource at www.plantmanagementnetwork.org/fop.

Focus on Potato is a publication of the Plant Management Network. The Plant Management Network (www.plantmanagementnetwork.org) is a nonprofit online publisher whose mission is to enhance the health, management, and production of agricultural and horticultural crops. It achieves this mission through applied, science-based resources, like Focus on Potato.
