The Plant Management Network (PMN) has released a new presentation entitled "Epidemiology and Management of Potato White Mold" to help growers, consultants and extension agents to understand how white mold persists and spreads and to evaluate management practices that can effectively limit plant damage and tuber yield loss.

Potato white mold – also known as Sclerotinia stem rot – is a common foliar disease that thrives in well-irrigated, high moisture production systems and can significantly reduce yield. 

The webcast, developed by Dennis A. Johnson, professor and extension plant pathologist at Washington State University, discusses how to:

  • Reduce overall fungus populations
  • Correctly diagnose potato white mold
  • Evaluate the need for in-season control measures
  • Properly time fungicide applications

The 18-minute presentation will remain open access throughout February 2017 in the Focus on Potato webcast resource.
