Every potato grower should be on guard against the destructive disease known as bacterial ring rot of potatoes, whether the potatoes are grown for seed or for table purposes. If even a trace of the disease was found in your crop this year, every effort should be made to eliminate it. If no ring rot appeared this year, precautions should be taken to prevent its introduction to the farm through seed, sacks, machinery, hauling equipment, or other means. It does not pay to take a chance with bacterial ring rot.
