Introduction. Your reference!
By Peter Darbishire
For your information...
Once again we are publishing an additional early spring Potatoes In Canada issue of Top Crop Manager, sponsored by DuPont Canada. This issue extends the potato production features already published in the regular annual edition a month ago. Importantly, this edition also includes an up-to-date ‘Guide to Potato Pest Control’: the industry’s only quick reference for products used to manage diseases, insects and weeds, as well as seed piece treatments. It provides comparative notes of products and the various diseases, insects and weeds they control. Be sure to cross-check provincial guidelines and product labels before making final decisions!
Other features in this issue cover a number of topics on production aspects of potatoes. Some decisions on protecting the crop’s yield potential must be left until the season is underway. Keep this issue on-hand for reference! -end-
