This presentation will help consultants, growers, and other practitioners in the US and Canada to identify and manage the fungus that causes silver scurf on potatoes. This disease causes wide spread losses in fresh marketed potatoes throughout North America, and can be particularly damaging on smooth skin potatoes and/or potatoes stored for long periods. Management options are discussed, beginning at planting , at harvest and during storage.
