Fighting Disease

Fast-spreading fungal infections and other potato diseases threaten the yields of Pacific Northwest growers. Blight and white mold, for instance, thrive in moist conditions, leading to smaller potatoes, yield loss and, in severe cases, plant death.

But disease management solutions are available. Pacific Northwest potato growers can achieve success by pairing cultural practices, such as crop rotation, with chemical controls. Increasingly important is incorporating fungicide rotation to fend off resistance.

By planning ahead and staying alert, growers can ensure strong crops and abundant production.
