Scheduled are Andrei Alyokhin, University of Maine professor of applied entomology, about the persistence of the Colorado potato beetle; Aaron Buzza, UMaine School of Biology and Ecology assistant scientist, on the effect of late-season use of stylet oil; and Ek Han Tan, UMaine assistant professor of plant genetics, about efforts to increase development of favorable traits in potato varieties. The three presentations are based on research funded by the Maine Potato Board.
