The planting distance for the potato variety Connect size 28/35 is 26 to 28 centimeters. For size 35/50, a planting distance of 33 to 35 centimeters is advised. We also recommend this planting distance for 50/60 cut seed potatoes. Always count the tubers and keep in mind that heavier soils require a closer planting distance.

The strong phytophthora resistance makes Connect suitable for organic cultivation. In the conventional cultivation, later in the season a treatment against Phytophthora can be useful when in the rare situation late blight starts to appear. You only irrigate the potato when necessary. Connect has a very fast emergence, initial development and soil coverage. A second fertilizer application is not necessary under normal circumstances.

We recommend to check the size before haulm killing. Do not harvest before the skin is fully matured. After harvesting, ensure rapid drying and good ventilation during storage. Cool the product gradually.
