Potato growing in Northern Ireland has become more and more specialised in recent years. Driven by the demands of the supermarkets, processors and consumers, potato growers must grow top quality potatoes to ensure that there is a ready market for their produce. From getting planting completed in time through blight control and timely harvesting the potato grower must try to get everything right. With our generally humid weather conditions, there is a constant battle against potato blight. Farmers have learned that good prevention is the best hope of keeping blight at bay. This can only be done through the timely use of top quality blight control fungicides. Selecting the right fields, the right varieties and the right fungicides can make potatoes a very successful and profitable crop on your farm.
