Healthy potato plants lead to healthy tuber development.

To help potato growers get the most out of their crop, the nonprofit Focus on Potato has launched a webinar on potato plant growth and development, according to a news release.

The 20-minute webcast will be led by Mike Thornton, a University of Idaho professor of plant science.

He will discuss each plant growth stage and identify its impact on crop yield.

Focus on Potato is an educational program from the Plant Management Network, a cooperative effort among the American Society of Agronomy, American Phytopathological Society and Crop Science Society of America.
