​This presentation will help growers, consultants, and others understand management of diseases that occur during potato storage. This presentation is most applicable to temperate production areas of North America but does address a few diseases that do not yet occur in North America. Understanding the biology of pathogens, how they infect, and how they can be managed is critical to reducing storage losses.
