Silver scurf, caused byHelminthosporium solani, is considered to be a tuberborne disease of potato. The ability ofH. solani to overwinter in soil was evaluated in field studies at two locations in New York during 1992. Field plots were established at sites whereH. solani infected potatoes had been produced in 1991. Plants produced from pathogen-free tubers of four cultivars yielded tubers infected with silver scurf at both locations. Up to 61% of tubers were infected in some plots. The ability… CONTINUE READING
