Description: "Diseases of sweet potatoes are divisible into two classes, 1) field troubles, and 2) storage rots. Field troubles are divisible into root and stem diseases and leaf diseases. Root and stem diseases include stem-rot, black-rot, foot-rot, scurf, and root-rot; and leaf disease, leaf-blight, white-rust, and leaf-spot.... Control of the five storage rots described hinges on careful storage-house management. Sweet potatoes infected with field diseases should never be placed in storage, for heavy loss will follow. But this elimination of field diseases must be coupled with a well-regulated system of storage, the first requisite of which is a thoroughly disinfected house free from the numerous storage-rot germs." -- p. 2. There are many methods of control for field diseases which are also discussed.
