Once again, Top Crop Manager is offering an early spring edition of Potatoes in Canada, sponsored by DuPont Canada. This issue extends the potato production features published in the regular edition a month ago. As an added feature, this edition includes an updated ‘Guide to Potato Pest Control’: the industry’s only quick reference for products used to manage diseases, insects and weeds, and seed piece treatments. It provides comparative notes on products and the various diseases, insects and weeds they control. Be sure to cross-check provincial guidelines and product labels before making any final decisions.
Other features in this issue cover a number of topics on production and storage of potatoes. Some decisions on protecting the crop’s yield potential must be left until the growing season is well underway. Keep this issue on hand for a quick reference.
