Title : Impact of UV-C radiation on the infestation degree of the stored potato tubers with Rhizoctonia Solani Kühn
Key words : potato; storing; Rhizoctonia solani; UV-C
Summary :

Within 2012-2014 two independent storage experiments aiming at determination of the UV-C radiation impact on the infestation degree of potato tubers with Rhizoctonia solani Kühn were carried out. Potato tubers were radiated in the chamber equipped with a UV-V 15 radiator located over the bottom of a chamber from 0.4 to 1.0 m over the ground using the exposition time within 1 to 60 minutes. Four edible potato varieties with a varied degree of earliness and varied fitness for use and culinary utility of the following tubers: Lord, Owacja, Vineta and Jelly, were used in tests. It was determined that radiation of Owacja tubers before storing caused reduction of Rhizoctonia canker in comparison to the control sample.
