Summary: This presentation will provide consultants, growers, and other practitioners in the potato growing regions of the US with important information on Potato mop top virus. This virus has traditionally been most important in Northern Europe and parts of South America. However, it has been reported relatively recently in several areas of Canada and the US, including Maine, North Dakota, Washington, and most recently in Idaho. Anecdotal reports from growers and processors suggest that the virus is increasing in importance in several potato-growing regions. This presentation will illustrate the various types of symptoms produced by PMTV and provide some guidelines for management of this soil-borne virus.
