Cover of Publication 823

The aim of this Field Guide is to help growers, scouts and crop advisors identify diseases, insects, and other problems found in potatoes in Ontario. It includes 554 colour photographs. The symptoms of each disease are shown in a chronological sequence of development, and disease-lookalikes are indicated for each of them. A section on some quarantine pests not present in the province is included to make growers, scouts and crop advisors aware of such potential problems. Several potato researchers from the US have indicated that the Potato Field Guide is an outstanding potato publication with concise and straightforward information for the field identification of potato pests and other problems.
