Information for crop farmers who want to get the best from their cultivation.
A practical guide to successful potato cultivation
Potato Signals contains practical information for crop farmers who want to get the best from their cultivation., harvesting and storage. Arable farming and growing potatoes are inextricably connected. Most farmers include this crop in their cultivation plan, sometimes as an extra but usually as a specialisation; the level of knowledge among growers has therefore increased greatly over past decades. But things can always be done better and smarter. Potato Signals is the practical guide that helps farmers to make well thought-out decisions in the broad selection of practical measures, to improve a weak link, and to dot the i’s and cross the t’s for an even higher yield from growing potatoes.
