With growers in the UK no longer able to use diquat to desiccate their potato crops, AHDB Potatoes trialled four different haulm toppers at Strategic Potato (SPot) Farm North.
AHDB Potatoes produced and published a short video about the four haulm toppers on its YouTube channel, and we publish it for viewing below.
There are more ways to learn more about desiccation without diquat. You can listen to an AHDB hosted podcast titled “Desiccation: solutions for the first season without Diquat” – it can be accessed on the AHDB Potatoes website here.
AHDB Potatoes will be showing the results of trials from this year during the following upcoming webinars:
