Why pre-sprouting early potoes?
- It has been shown from practice that it is of importance to cultivate a deliverable batch (40/+) potatoes as early as possible.
In general the price drops down faster than kilos grow on.
- By pre-sprouting you get a stone-hard sprout.
However, it is important to harden the seed-potatoes over a long time (8 weeks and more).
- Autumn delivery of seed-potatoes becomes possible.
In this way pre-presprouting system Joppe becomes a storage system.
Because of the discount for autumn delivery you already can recover the depreciation (within 10 years).
You can then fill the Joppe presprouting bags in December – January.
Let a strong shoot grow. Early varieties generally have a weak shoot.
