Integrated pest control of Colletotrichum coccodes and Helmin-thosporium solani in swiss potato production
Title OriginalIntegrierte Bekämpfung von Colletotrichum coccodes und Helminthosporium solani in der Kartoffelwirtschaft
The fungal diseases silver scab and the wilt disease of the potato cause quality-reducing symptoms on the potato tubers and lead to increased evaporation in the warehouse, which reduces the marketable product volume. The damage to the Swiss potato industry is estimated at CHF 10 million per year. The goal of the project is a reduction of 30 %. Aims: Identify phases of greatest control success, identify the host spectrum of C.coccodes (crop rotation planning), determine resistance properties of potato varieties, test control measures (biological/synthetic active substances, biofumigation), and develop an overall control concept.
