Potato: Seasonal potato crop PANAMERA variety

Geographical area
Crop
Main issue
Irrigation system
brown potato lot

This test was set up in Korba, Capbon, Tunisia on seasonal potato crop PANAMERA variety (mixed fresh market variety and processing into fries) characterized by a long crop cycle, a productive variety and therefore a high need for water and to maintain water comfort throughout the cycle, especially in this type of hill driving in twin lines.
Heavy late rainfall, especially from mid-May to mid-June
Different variables were studied, such as the water retention of the plot, the physiological behavior of the plants, the impact on the quality of the harvest (number, size, and dry matter) and the final yield.
The trial was carried out in order to deduce the added value of integrating FLOBOND DI2010 into the fertigation schedule for the seasonal potato crop.
