ST PAUL, Minn.-Silver Scurf has become an increasingly important potato disease since its discovery in the early 1900s. The disease causes widespread losses in fresh marketed potatoes throughout North America, and can be particularly damaging on smooth skin potatoes and/or potatoes stored for long periods.

The latest Focus on Potato presentation by Dr. Philip Hamm, Professor of Plant Pathology at Oregon State University, helps growers, consultants, and other practitioners in the U.S. and Canada identify and manage the fungus that causes silver scurf on potatoes.

In this talk, management options are discussed, starting at the planting phase, then harvest, and finally storage.
 
This 38-minute presentation is open access through October 31, 2012.
