Database of the main pathogens detected, identified

and characterized in the potato crop in Peru

Phytophthora infestans and Ralstonia solanacearum affect numerous crops of economic importance worldwide. In Peru, these pathogens are the main phytosanitary problems associated with potato. On the other hand, viruses affect potato crops, so the results generated in the detection of these viruses will allow to better understand the diversity of viruses.
Results for Ralstonia solanacearum, Phythopthora infestans and results for Virome and capacity building

Phytophthora infestans

Late blight (Tizón tardio TT) caused by P. infestans is the most destructive potato disease in the world and is consider a very strong plant disease.

Ralstonia solanacearum

Bacterial wilt (marchitez bacteriana MB) caused by R. solanacearum produces large losses worldwide due to the variability of the pathogen, wide range of hosts and large geographical distribution.
