With the detection of Zebra Chip in 2011, many people have questions about managing potato psyllids and Zebra Chip in 2012. On the Pacific Northwest & Treasure Valley Pest Alert Network website (http://www.pnwpestalert.net/) are three documents aimed at providing the most accurate information available for the situation in Idaho:

1). Idaho recommendations (drafted by Phil Nolte, Erik Wenninger, Mike Thornton and Nora Olsen of the University of Idaho; Jeff Miller of Miller Research; and Andy Jensen of the ID/WA/OR Potato Commissions);

2). Biology and Management of Potato Psyllid in Pacific Northwest Potatoes by Alan Schreiber (Agriculture Development Group, Inc.), Andy Jensen (ID/WA/OR Potato Commissions) and Silvia Rondon (Oregon State University);

3). Psyllid Identification/Information Card.

Contact the appropriate scientists (Phil Nolte, Erik Wenninger, Mike Thornton, Nora Olsen of the University of Idaho; Jeff Miller of Miller Research; or Andy Jensen of the ID/WA/OR Potato Commissions) if you have any questions or comments regarding the plan. This information also will be posted at multiple websites as indicated in the recommendation plan.
