Potato blight mapped in Europe - 2014

A team of researchers tracking the 2014 population of the potato late blight pathogen have added to the 2013 data to extend the spatial diversity plots and combine this with novel genetic analysis tools that visualise the distribution and diversity of dominant clones and reveals novel genetically diverse isolates in some regions.

Unique approach to control phytophthora in potatoes

Fast new techniques for genetic identification enable a more specific control of the potato disease phytophthora; this is the theory of scientists from Wageningen UR, who aim to partner with industry to further analyse the genetic variation of the pathogen and link it to practical recommendations. This will allow potato growers to optimally align…
