Organic Potatoes: From Starts to Storage


Workshop audio recordings from the 2015 MOSES Organic Farming Conference.


Presenters: Ruth Genger and Doug Rouse, University of Wisconsin
Saturday 2-a

Potatoes can be challenging to produce, but knowledge about crop needs and management options can help you achieve a bountiful harvest—and keep it longer in storage. We’ll cover sourcing and handling seed, fertility needs, managing pests and diseases, small-and large-scale equipment options, harvesting and storage. We’ll also discuss standard and specialty variety choices, continuing on-farm potato variety trialing projects in the Midwest, and possibilities for on-farm seed potato production.
