Key parameters for growing potato

  • Whastsapp


Potatoes grow in a wide range of climates, but the optimum day temperature is between 15 and 20 °C.
Potatoes develop well in most soil types, but harvesting is more efficient in lighter soils. A good soil structure is required, since this crop prefers welldrained,
aerated, and porous soils. The optimal soil pH is between 5 and 6.

Slightly alkaline soils can adversely affect skin quality, and highly alkaline conditions can induce micronutrient deficiencies.
Potato is considered a chloride-sensitive crop. Potatoes have an elevated nitrogen consumption level and even higher potassium requirements. Sufficient calcium applications enhance the storage life of tubers.
