New ‘Focus on Potato’ Webcast Addresses Fungicide Resistance, Management

New ‘Focus on Potato’ Webcast Addresses Fungicide Resistance, Management
September 22, 2014
While weed resistance issues have been grabbing many headlines over the past few years, fungicide resistance has become an increasingly important issue this growing season—and likely for future growing seasons if sound resistance management practices are not adopted.

In the latest ‘Focus on Potato’ presentation, Barry Jacobsen, Professor of Plant Pathology at Montana State University helps potato growers, consultants, agribusiness personnel and others associated with the potato industry in North America to understand and manage problems associated with fungicide resistance.

This presentation, titled “Managing Fungicide Resistance in Potato” specifically covers:

  • Different fungicide modes of action currently registered for US potato crops
  • The risks of developing fungicide resistance
  • Practices to minimize the development of fungicide resistance problems in production fields

This 38-minute presentation is open access through November 2014. Other presentations in the Focus on Potato resource can be viewed at www.plantmanagementnetwork.org/fop.

Webcasts on a variety of other crops can be found in PMN’s Education Center.
