Abstract
A survey conducted in all major potato growing areas of Nakuru, Bomet, Nyandarua, Meru and Nyeri districts showed that bacterial wilt continues to ravage the potato crop reducing yield and shelf life of harvested tubers. Generally an average of between 30- 70% bacterial wilt incidences were observed. Comprehensive multidisciplinary control strategies need to be put in place to ensure continued growing of this crop that is important in offering food security, alleviation of poverty and generation of employment opportunities to majority of Kenyans.
