Organic Potatoes

Cultivating quality step by step

Potatoes are very suitable for direct marketing due to their popularity and versatility. But good yields are needed for commercial production to cover the high costs of cultivation and mechanisation. The very high quality requirements at every stage of marketing require the highest care from seed preparation to plant protection, nutrient and water supply to harvest and storage. This guide provides a good basis for achieving high-quality products. Commercial potato farms complement their knowledge with the help of experts and further literature.

This booklet results from the Organic Knowledge Network Arable project funded by the Horizon 2020 programme of the European Union.

The booklet was produced by FiBL and the English version was adapted by ORC.
