In this video, Christian Bruns of the University of Kassel, Germany, introduces a potato planter that simultaneously applies compost to the potato furrow. In the video, he reports on which composts are used and when mass production of the new machine can be expected. This video is relevant for all potatoes farmers and advisors looking for holistic ways of controlling Rhizoctonia solani.

EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:Potato planter simultaneously applies compost to fight Rizoctonia solani at an early stage.
What problem does the tool address?:Rhizoctonia solani is a problem in organic potato production. On the one hand, the disease attacks its hosts in the early stages of development. The sclerotia, which are the permanent survival form of the fungus, are also a problem and lead to yield and quality losses. If infected potatoes are replanted later, the infection spreads again.
What solution does the tool offer?:Rizoctonia solani can be controlled through the use of compost. A potato planter is presented, which offers the possibility of bringing the compost directly with the potatoes into the soil to fight the disease at an early stage.
