To grow any crop successfully, you need to have a handle of what pests may be threatening that crop and how to identify them, whether it’s insects, diseases, or weeds. And potatoes are no exception. Rob Spencer, commercial horticulture specialist with Alberta Agriculture, says an upcoming workshop will help producers do just that. Watch an interview with Rob Spencer on YouTube (2:11 mins). There are two Potato Pest Management workshops—March 6 in Sherwood Park, March 8 in Lethbridge. The registration deadline is February 27. To register, call 1-800-387-6030.
