Potato Ring Rot in Denmark

We have received on 22 January, 1976, notification from the Government Plant Protection Service that, despite strict eradication measures taken for several years in Denmark, two lots of ware potatoes were found infected with Corynebacterium sepedonicum in autumn 1975.

The eradication program is continuing nevertheless.
