That's very interesting, I didn't knew RootShield could be used on 
potato against scab.  My soil has a fairly high pH (6.5 - 7) and high 
organic matter content (> 5%), which I understand promotes scab.  And 
indeed, last year, my potatoes where very scabby.  I plant only about 
200# of seed potatoes, so it would not be overly expensive to treat my 
seeds.  Can you tell us more about your experience about using 
T-22/RootShield on potatoes?
