Re: RE: Cult-Botrytis

> A shipping procedure of the large suppliers is to dig large quantities of
each cultivar and store them in large bins from which they are selected for
shipping. They are also transported in large bins from field to the packing
station. What if over time these bins have become a breeding ground for
Botrytis and subsequently infect what is stored in them? This is one
possiblity. Of course this is testable. You only need to sterilise these
storage and transportation bins before the start of the shipping season.
Then see if it has any effect on amount of problem.

Chuck do you think this procedure could cause bruising or damage to the
rhizome? There could be a lot of weight pressing down on the ones in the
bottom of the bins. Smaller growers would not have this problem.
