Potato Features

Requirements for potatoes are continuing to increase

Thanks to their high adaptability, potatoes are cultivated on all continents, and their contribution to feeding the world’s population is very important due to their particularly high nutrient density per hectare. However, the continuing progression of climate change is resulting in new pressure to adapt. Due to its intensity and pace, it will be very difficult to counter this with the solutions that are available so far.

Farms of the Future

In cooperation with PotatoWorld Magazine

Precision agriculture is a farming management concept based on observing, measuring and responding to inter and intra-field variability in crops. How can it help to meet the challenges Agriculture faces? In a Dutch Farm of the Future, we combine agro-ecological knowledge with precision agriculture technologies.

More precision in potato production; weed control

In cooperation with PotatoWorld Magazine

Precision agriculture is a farming management concept based on observing, measuring and responding to inter and intra-field variability in crops. How does this apply to weed control in potatoes.  Let us have a look at variable rate application of soil herbicides.

Variable rate planting

In cooperation with PotatoWorld Magazine

Precision agriculture (PA) is a farming management concept based on observing, measuring and responding to inter and intra-field variability in crops. Spatial optimization of planting density of potatoes is high on the wish list of farmers.
