KEYWORDS: Irish potato, micro organisms, growth media, temperature, relative humidity and pH

ABSTRACT:

Post harvest deterioration of Irish potato (Solmwm tubero.rnm) (L) under storage wasinvestigated in the laboratory and found to be caused by fusarium .'lola11i. This fungus is aprimary invader of the tubers and entry is through wounds arish1g from harvesting andhandling. A range of growth media were used nnd potnto dextrose broth supported the.growth of the organism better than potato carrot broth and Czapek dox broth. The leastgrowth was observed in Czapek do.x broth.Post harvest deterioration of Irish potato (Solmwm tubero.rnm) (L) under storage wasinvestigated in the laboratory and found to be caused by fusarium .'lola11i.
