Risk factors


Tuber rot caused by fungi of the genus Phoma thrives in the wounds created during harvesting and packing operations and by moderate storage temperatures of around 8 to 10°C.


Low temperatures, immediately after harvesting or packing, encourage the development of Phoma spp. as cold slows the healing of tuber wounds.
