The planting distance for size 28/35 is 25 to 27 centimeters. For the size 35/50, a distance of 30 to 32 centimeters applies. We also recommend this size for 50/60 cut seed potatoes. Always count the tubers and keep in mind that heavier soils to maintain a closer planting distance.

Granola requires little nitrogen. You plant this potato variety at normal depth in the back and not on too heavy soils.

Granola has good leaf development and provides sufficient foliage. Under normal circumstances, a second application of fertilizers is not necessary. The consumption variety contains good resistance to Phytophthora. Nevertheless, we recommend spraying preventively.

We advise to be careful with mother tubers if they are not yet sufficiently digested. We also recommend protecting Granola potatoes from damage during harvest.
