#34 Why was 2022 such a challenging year for PVY - Mathuresh Singh
SpudChat is back! Over the next couple of weeks, we're sharing some of the presentations from the 2023 PEI Potato Conference, held in Summerside on February 13th. First up is Dr. Mathuresh Singh of Agricultural Certification Services in Fredericton, NB to talk about PVY and why it was such a problem in 2022. Mathuresh covers a number of reasons why PVY levels might be so elevated from last season, including the appearance of green peach aphids, changes in varieties, changes in grower demographics, and changes in field management. We're also including some of the questions at the end of the presentation.
