Clear Lake—The Imperial Seed company of Clear Lake announces the development of a new treatment for seed potatoes and potato seed sets. This treatment uses a new combination of chemicals and has been named Chaogon. Chao- gon was discovered and developed by the company's head plant pathologist, Doctor S. John Chao. The Chaogon treatment has a triple action. It eliminates the fungus on the surface of the potato pieces. It is this fungus, usually called Scab, that later causes disease on potatoes. It also protects the potato pieces from disease-causing fungus that may be in the adjacent earth when they are planted. In addition, the Chaogon treatment helps create a protective coating that enables the potato pieces to be planted earlier, when the ground is still cold, yet still germinate quickly and properly. This protective coating also helps keep the pieces in good condition if. storage is necessary by retarding, rotting, molding, or premature shriveling. The potato seed sets prepared and sold by the Imperial Seed company from now on will be treated with Chaogon.
