Temperatures 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. We suggest growing the the Irish potato outdoors year round, as they don't fear cold weather.Plant which needs at least a few hours a day of sunlight.

Irrigation 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. Watering takes place only when the soil has been dry for days, usually every 1-2 weeks can be enough; if the climate is particularly hot we can slightly intensify the irrigations, using 1-2 glasses of water .

Feed 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.
