Technical Session E: Potato Crop Management

Chair: David Thompson – Director | World Potato Congress Inc.

Co-chair: Marcelo Huarte – Private consultant | Former INTA

Tuesday 29 May – 10.30 – 14.50 hrs

Summary:

Basic and applied information for high yielding, environmentally sustainable and economically profitable potato crops is presented in this session. New research and technology that may have a positive impact on the potato industry is presented, keeping in mind that growers and agronomists deal with crops that require high investment and skill to produce in a sustainable way. Special interest is given to precisión farming, soil preparation under conservational premises, models for fertilizer and irrigation scheduling, variety specifi c management techniques, quality management certificatión issues, digital farming, rational pesticide application and other technologies oriented to maximize yield and quality in an environmentally and economical sustainable way. The nine oral presentations refl ect modern and innovative aspects related to potato crop management. Five of them consider water supply in relation to yield, effi ciency of fertilizer uptake and modelling of crop growth. Aspects of cophysiology, fungicide and growth regulators utilization are considered in both fi eld and aeroponical crops. Most presentations relate those agronomic aspects with tuber quality for processing. Presentations come from Argentina, Belgium, India, Indonesia, The Netherlands, Peru, and three from the United States.

The seventeen posters selected for this World Potato Congress/ALAP also have a strong innovative characteristic in many aspects of crop management, such as soil management, irrigation, fertilizer application, microbial activity under diff erent soil management practices, greenhouse management for prebasic seed production, and deployment of national varieties in small farmer’s fields. Poster presentations come from Brazil (5), Canada, Colombia (2), Iran, Italy (2), Latvia, Peru, United Kingdom and Uruguay.
