Summary

Potatoes are very suitable for direct marketing thanks to their diversity. Good yields are necessary to cover the high costs for cultivation and mechanisation. The very high-quality demands in every marketing sector require the most careful maintenance, which includes preparation of planting material, plant protection, nutrient and water supply as well as harvest and storage.
This manual provides a good basis to achieve high-quality products. Experienced organic potato farmers can enhance their knowledge with specialist advice and additional literature.
