Agricultural Department Sug
gests Means of Eradicat
ing Disease
The treatment of seed potatoes with
formaldehyde or with eornive subli
mate has been recommended for many
years as a preventive of scab and other
diseases carried o nlhe tubers.
Such treatment is, on the whole,
profitable, but has several limitations
which should be clearly recognized to
prevent disappointment, according to
the specialists of the department. ' The
object of disinfecting seed potatoes is
to destroy the germs uf scab and other
surface parasites which might other
wise lie planted with the seed and in
fect the ne wcrop. Only surface in
fections are reached by this method.
It is only partially effective against
deep pits of cominun scab. Formalde
hyde is less effective than corrosive
sublimate against the black sclerotia or
resting bodies of Rhizoctonia, or russet
scab, and "against powdery scab. Neither
chemical, as ordinarily used, will de
stroy silver scurf. Eiilier one will kill
surface infections of blackleg, but
neither will reach the internal infec
tions coirrrnoii in tubers from blackleg
hills. Neither fusariuiu wilt nor late
blight infection in potato tubers can be
reached by any seed treatment, nor can
any of the non-parasitic diseases of po
tatoes, such as mosaic leaf roll, and
curly dwarf, be prevented. See Fann
ers' Bulletin 544 for descriptions of
these troubles.
Clearly, therefore, the most importmit
precaution against these diseases is to
select clean, disease-free seed potatoes
from healthy, vigorous plants, as de
termined by field inspection during the
growing season and at, harvest. Seed
treatment should then be applied as an
additional precaution. It will not be
effective, however, if the soil where the
potatoes are to be planted is already
full of disease.
Soil Conditions and potato Diseases.
Soil conditions have an important rg
lution to potato tuber diseases, and
many of these are widely spread
throughout the country, perhaps native
to some soils. Common scab is favored
by a neutral or slightly alkaline soil,
and seldom gives trouble in acid soils.
It is therefore increased by liming and
by fresh stable manure, wood ashes, and
alkaline fertilibers, such as nitrate of
r soda and ground bone, while acid phos
phate and sulphate ot ammonia tenia
to diminish senb.
