Manifestation and risk of fungal pathocomplex from genera Fusarium and Alternaria on potato

УДК 635.21:632.4

E.S. Prikhodko, A.N. Smirnov

The paper is devoted to very dangerous potato disease –combined potato wilt caused with pathocomplex of fungi from genera Fusarium and Alternaria on the base of contrasted meteorological conditions: strong rains (during two decades) and dried conditions (during also two decades). The disease leads to crucial potato yield loss. Protective measures against this disease should include scheduled irrigation at dried weather not less than for 7-10 days with application of mixtures of biopreparations and organic mineralized fertilizers.

Keywords: potato, Phytophthora infestans, Alternaria alternata, Fusarium, phytosanitary risk.
