The correct amount of water on your potato crop is essential for producing high yields. Zimmatic irrigation systems bring a cost effective solution, alleviating risk when the weather isn't cooperating. They also give you more flexibility when it comes to planting, because your timeline is not affected by nature.
Potatoes are shallow-rooted and more sensitive to soil moisture stress than crops with deeper roots. Moisture stress (depending on the growth stage) can reduce tuber yields, produce misshapen tubers, and negatively affect processing quality.
Above all, proper irrigation management helps optimise yields, size distribution and quality of both seed and consumption grade tubers.
