Isolation And Identification Of Fungal Pathogen In Two Varieties Of Irish Potatoes (White And Red) Stored In Mangu LGA, Plateau State


Objectives of the Study


General Objective

The general objective of this study is to isolate and identify fungal pathogens in two varieties of Irish potatoes (white and red) stored in Mangu Local Government Area (LGA), Plateau State, with the aim of developing effective management strategies to reduce post-harvest losses.


Specific Objectives

  1. To determine the prevalence of fungal pathogens in stored white and red varieties of Irish potatoes in Mangu LGA.

  2. To compare the susceptibility of white and red potato varieties to fungal infections during storage.

  3. To evaluate the impact of storage conditions on the incidence of fungal infections in stored potatoes.

  4. To explore the effectiveness of different fungicidal treatments in controlling fungal pathogens in stored potatoes.
