Results of attempted eradication of bacterial ring rot from potatoes

  • Dudley Peters Glick


Results of the first year’s increase of selected lots of seed potatoes, upon which the microscopic method was used in an attempt to eradicate bacterial ring rot, are presented. The method was apparently successful in all lots except one of the Katahdin variety. The use of the method has been continued in an attempt to produce a ring-rot-free lot of this variety.
