Bhabesh Dutta, University of Georgia assistant professor and Extension vegetable disease specialist, covers center rot in Vidalia onion. According to Dutta, Georgia plants approximately 12,000 acres of sweet Vidalia onions every year, which brings in $145 million. So, protecting this crop against center rot is critical for growers.
