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.

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.
