My program will be responsible for receiving and coordinating information from the seed certification agencies and providing it for economic analysis. I will collect photos of PVY strains in different potato cultivars and create PVY training manuals for seed certifiers, growers, and the seed potato industry. My research will measure the impact of seed-born PVY on yield loss and on the amount of PVY in the harvested crop.
