Video: Disease management – ‘Rhizoctonia solani’, a serious disease of potatoes

This video, featuring a field presentation by Dr. Jeff Miller of Miller Research in Idaho, provides his description of Rhizoctonia solani in potato fields and how growers can manage this nasty pathogen. Dr Miller says that Rhizoctonia solani in a potato crop is a pretty serious disease and can affect both the stems and the tubers of potato plants – like many growers know from experience. Dr Miller provides helpful hints on how growers can potentially manage Rhizoctonia solani – known by many potato growers simply as “Rhizoc” – when it is present in any of their potato fields. Watch YouTube video
