ANNABELLE ANNABELLE NICOLA X MONALISA General production advice ware potatoes Pre-treatment and planting Pre-treatment and planting - Annabelle has a short dormancy. - Keep the seed in refrigerated storage to prevent physiological aging and dehydration of the seed. - Allow the seed to acclimatize to the local conditions before planting. - Planting with small white sprouts produces the best results. - Plant 3 cm deeper than for normal use. This effects the rooting system and the absorbtion of nutrients favourably. - When product is grown for long term storage, the fungicide Azoxystrobine is preferred. This will prevent Silver Scurf. - Always treat SEEDS AND SOIL against Rhizoctonia. Cutting: - Cutting of the big sizes can be done, in that case, be sure of dry cricumstances. - Be sure of dry cricumstances. Let the seed cure direct. Optimum results from 3-4 weeks prior to planting. Growing attentionpoints - Post-emergence, use Metrubuzin (Sencor) the low doses system. - Annabelle seems susceptible to Centium, also in combination with other herbicides. - Keep the foliage vigurous until tubers have reached 45 mm. - Top dressing should only be given in limited quantities. - Over fertilisation will restults in a higher sensitivity of Late Blight. - Ensure early treatments against Late Blight (Phytophthora) - Later on during the season, switch over to remedies with a better tuber protection. - Irrigation provides a regular growth and uniform product with better cooking quality. - Don't overirrigate, as it will result in poor quality and on some soiltypes a higher risk of Powdery Scurf. Haulmkilling and harvest - For an optimum dormancy, haulm killing should take place on a mature crop. - Aim for a product with a dry matter content of 19,7 % - Ensure at least 3 weeks between haulm killing and harvest to have a better skin set. - The tubers should be fully skin set before harvest. - Avoid harvest damage at all times. - Micro - damage will end in more dehydration and early sprouting. Storage - Because of the short dormancy and susceptibility to Fusarium,extra attention should be paid on storage. - If harvested under normal conditions, refregiration can begin very shortly after curing. - For storage longer than 2 months, refregiration is required. REFRIGERATED STORAGE - Refrigerate with a small difference between cooling temperature and product temperature to limit loss of weight. - Cooling regime of 0,5 - 0,7 degrees a day, to a stable temperature of 4-5 degrees. - Storage lower than the advice results in increased sweetening. - Ventilate regularly but shortly to avoid Co2 accumulation. - Every fluctuation in temperature, in combination with formation of condensation, results in earlier sprouting and an enlarged risk of silver scurf. 23 Mar 2012 HZPC takes no responsibility for any harmful consequences that might eventually occur when using this information.
