Horticulture Tip for the week of July 5-11, 2015 Title:

“Potato Scab”

Here’s a Horticulture Tip from University of Missouri Extension:

Potato scab can be a serious disease of potatoes, causing symptoms from brown lesions to deep pits in the tuber.  The organisms that cause potato scab live in the soil, and cause problems when the soil pH is too high.  If you have potato scab in your garden, don’t add lime.  It’s best to get a soil test to know exactly how to modify your soil.

This has been Tim Baker, with a Horticulture Tip from University of Missouri Extension.
