Several potato pest diagnostic tests kits are available to help you identify your nemesis, but you must first learn how to use them.

Focus on Potato is hosting a webinar to do just that, according to a news release.

Nora Olsen, a University of Idaho plant pathologist, will walk viewers through the use of various diagnostic options that are available to potato growers.

The webinar will be available through Dec. 31.

You also can view other educational sessions on the Focus on Potato's website.

Focus on Potato is produced by the Plant Management Network, a non-profit collaboration of the American Society of Agronomy, American Phytopathological Society and Crop Science Society of America.
