Potato Virus Detection Training Workshops

potato virus workshopThree locations in 2018:

These workshops will cover field identification of PVY (strains O, N-Wi and NTN), including visual identification of foliar symptoms on 20 cultivars commonly grown in each region (NW, Mid-West and NE). We expect a high attendance rate because recent standardization of seed certification programs across the U.S. includes the requirement for documentation of inspector training. However, this training will also be beneficial to growers, people who rogue, and those in the potato industry in general, so please sign up early! 

The workshop is part of a USDA-NIFA Specialty Crops Initiative award #2014-51181-22373 titled “Biological and economic impacts of emerging potato tuber necrotic viruses and the development of comprehensive and sustainable management practices.”

The workshops are free, but pre-registration is requested:
