Early Generation Seed Potato Production Discussed in ‘Focus on Potato’ Webcast


This presentation by Dr. Amy Charkowski, Associate Professor of Plant Pathology at the University of Wisconsin, will help users understand the fundamentals of early generation seed potato production, from tissue culture to minituber production. By the end of the presentation, users will understand the process of producing a large crop of potato tubers from a single disease-tested tissue culture plantlet and should be able to use this knowledge to help evaluate the health of a seed potato crop.
