Brown Bag – Implications of planting seed potato tubers infected with Potato virus Y – Debra Inglis
April 20, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Title: Implications of planting seed potato tubers infected with Potato virus Y
Presenter: Dr. Debra Inglis, Plant Pathologist, WSU Mount Vernon NWREC
Description: New strains of Potato virus Y have been detected recently in northwestern Washington and because they are sometimes difficult to detect, confound traditional seed potato certification and virus disease management protocols. This seminar will describe recent work by Beissinger, Benedict, and Inglis on recognizing and managing this important virus disease problem which can occur on specialty potatoes grown in our region for both seed potato and fresh market sales.
Eligible for 1 pesticide credit.
