CEREALS AS AN OPTIMAL PRECURSOR TO POTATOES
Potato is a crop that does not cause difficulties with placement in a crop rotation: in order to get maximum yields, competent agricultural producers provide for at least a three-year rotation, embedding various combinations of grains, legumes, cruciferous, cereals, legumes and green manure crops into the scheme.
Proper crop rotation is at the heart of a potato protection system, but it must be tailored to specific needs, as there are no universally good predecessors in the context of disease control. For example, clover is relevant in most cases, except for use in the spread of root-knot nematodes.
The optimal predecessors of potatoes, according to experts, are winter crops. How to get a decent result from their cultivation? You need to start with pre-sowing protection.
