I have made several new additions to the website in the past couple of days, the most noteable of which is the addition of a page on White Mold of potato. As with the other pages, a .pdf version of the bulletin will be posted on the website when it is published by MSU Extension. In the meantime if you would like a .pdf copy of any particluar bulletin listed on this website please e-mail me at webmaster at I have also updated the links page. This page is a work in progress so as I come across interesting potato related websites I will post them on the page. If you have any you would like to see listed please let me know.

Spring Cleaning

In anticipation of the upcoming field season I am starting to do a bit of spring cleaning on the website. Over the next couple of weeks I will be updating the content of the website as well as making changes to the appearance of some of the pages. Look out for new bulletins on white mold, Fusarium dry rot, black dot, pink rot, seed piece health management and more. As the new pages are added to the website I will post their availability on this page.
