Is this Potato diseased?

Hi all,
Take a look at this pic - is this a disease on the leaves - all the other shoots are fine and dandy (could it be that I put some soluble fertiliser on it before it popped up?).

    If that were in my garden, I'd first suspect it to be insect damage. A number of insects, both adults and larvae, skeletonize leaves the the manner shown. However you may find some guidance here: http://www.cipotato.org/publications/pdf/002408.pdf
