Summary

Organic potatoes are in demand, although their cultivation is difficult due to lower yields and disease problems. A field study carried out in Sri Lanka illustrated that using good quality organic manures combined with the technology of Effective Microorganisms (EM) in a system of Nature Farming could enhance yields of organic potatoes and also reduce disease incidence significantly. The prospects of producing organic potatoes are presented on the basis of this study.
