A potato IPM training module has been launched and can be found on the Ontario CropIPM website here: http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/IPM/english/index.html
The module is a great educational tool with information for the common insect pests, diseases, viruses and disorders of potatoes in Ontario. For each pest or disease, summarized information can be found in the Beginner tab and more detailed information can be found under the Advanced tab. In the “often confused with” section of the entries you can view side-by-side photos of insects/disease/disorders that cause similar symptoms. You can also find more information on soil diagnostics, weed identification, herbicide injury, and links to additional resources.
Make sure to bookmark the page today and use it as a resource for any IPM and pest related issues on potatoes.
