New Dry Rot webpage online

The new webpage on Dry rot of potato is now online. The webpage covers the symptoms of the disease, disease cycle and current control options available in Michigan. A printed version of the webpage will be available from the MSU Extension Bulletin Office later in the year, and when that is published a .pdf version will be made available online. To receive a .pdf version before then contact and I will send you one via e-mail.

Two new publications available for download

Two new publications have just been posted to our publications page and are available for immediate download. The first publication is on Phytophthora infestans, the causal agent of late blight, and the second is a First Report on a new disease of potatoes called Fusarium sprout rot, which is caused by the Fusarium dry rot pathogen Fusarium sambucinum.
