Exposure Irish potatoSole pieno
When the crop doesn’t have cultivations, we can cover part of it, with polyethylene green houses, even if small, to cultivate firstlings. The the Irish potato should be grown outdoors; it can bear very harsh temperatures without any problems, even many degrees below zero.the Irish potato should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight.

Watering Irish potatoTenere asciutto
We suggest watering the crop letting the water flow freely on the ground, avoiding wetting the foliage; this tip is useful to avoid some common fungal diseases from developing. Water rarely, about once every 1-2 weeks with 1-2 glasses of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down.

Fertilization Irish potato
Let’s enrich the soil of the crop, with organic fertilizer or humus, already by the end of the winter, working the soil deeply with a shovel. After planting the young little plants, in the spring, let’s add granular slow release fertilizer.
