Cropping Systems – Rotation
It is proposed to investigate the influence of preceding crop on the performance of potatoes and the influence of the following crop on soil borne diseases. This would look at the influence of the crop on key soil borne diseases and the influence of the preceding crop on potato crop performance and yield. The treatments are expected to include cereals, maize, onions, brassicas, grass and biofumigant crops. This work is proposed to start in 2015.
