The most important arable crop needs the most attention. Is it getting it from you?
Crop farming and potato growing are inextricably linked. Just about every crop farmer has potatoes in his cropping plan - sometimes just as an add-on, but usually as a true specialisation. Partly because of this, there has been a vast improvement in growers’ knowledge over the past few decades.
But there is always room for improvement. With its wide ranging advice and suggestions, the Potato Signals practical guide will help you make better, well-founded decisions, eliminate weak points or simply get all the little details right. So you can get even more out of your potato crop.
Potato Signals covers all the important stages in potato growing, starting with preparing for plantingand continuing right through to storing and delivering the potatoes. Where necessary we distinguish between ware potatoes and seed potatoes.
Are you a dab hand at reading the signals given off by your potatoes? Can you tell straight away whether they are lacking in manganese, nitrogen or magnesium? And how do you check the planting depth straight after planting?
This book is packed full of practical instructions and advice aimed at everyone involved in growing potatoes. We wanted to keep it a handy size so we haven’t been able to cover every single aspect.
Potato Signals is designed to be ‘zapped through’. You’re sure to find something useful on every page.
