Synchytrium endobioticum - Potato Wart or Potato Canker
Potato wart disease is caused by a soil-borne fungus, Synchytrium endobioticum, that attacks the growing points on the potato plant, such as eyes, buds and stolon tips. The fungus can remain dormant in the soil for several years or more as resting spores.
