AHDB has published its 19 August webinar regarding potato desiccation online as a YouTube video. It shows pictures and video clips of commercial potato crops during haul destruction. It also contains tips and guidance from leading researchers on how to apply desiccants, and use mechanical alternatives to diquat for desiccation of potato crops.
Trial results and observations from research into how to desiccate seed potato and ware potato crops without diquat are in the spotlight as well in the video.
Specialists who participated were David Wilson (AHDB), Mark Stalham (NIAB CUF), and Eric Anderson (Scottish Agronomy Ltd).
We publish the video below, but readers can also access it on YouTube here.
