Healthy potato seeds

Last september, Kenhose organized a scouting mission in East-Java to identify the pests and diseases challenging seed potato production in the field during the dry season. On top of visual pest and disease assessments, samples of diseased plants were collected and sent to two laboratories (one in Indonesia and one in the Netherlands) for molecular diagnosis. Furthermore, discussions on pest and disease management measures to ensure healthy seed potato production in the long run were initiated.
