Botanical Features

Agricultural Features

High yielding variety; uniform tuber size, high percentage of large tubers. Good resistance to second growth.   Grades well with few culls. Good storage quality, needs through-the-pile ventilation. High specific gravity.  For seed production, plants should be 15 to 20 cm apart and for processing, 30 to 40 cm apart. Reduced fertilization decreases the difficulty in top-killing.

NOTE: foliage is very sensitive to applications of the herbicide metribuzin (Lexone®, Sencor®) so this herbicide must be applied well before emergence.

Reaction to Diseases

Moderately resistant: early blight, fusarium dry rot (Fusarium coeruleum and Fusarium sambucinum), phoma rot, rhizoctonia.
Susceptible: common scab, late blight, leaf roll, verticillium wilt and PVY.

NOTE: shows poor symptoms expression of PVY. Rogue under cloudy conditions.
