Potatoes In Canada Special Issue: Introduction from the editor.
We are fortunate in being able to provide an additional early spring Potatoes
In Canada issue of Top Crop Manager, sponsored by Bayer CropScience.
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.
Other features cover a number of topics, from ideas to help show a professional
image to the world outside the production aspects of potatoes, to plant breeding
and pest management advice.
Some decisions on protecting the crop's yield potential must be left until
the season is underway. Keep this issue on-hand for reference! -30-
