Potatoes, irreplaceable in our latitudes, are rightfully considered the second bread. And some adore it so much in fried or baked form that they will not exchange it for any other goodies.
Growing potatoes is not difficult. The main thing is to prepare the soil after winter, to clean the plantings from harmful plants, beetles and worms in time. The most important enemy of this culture is the Colorado potato beetle, with which a person actively fights using poisonous spraying.
One of the most popular mid-early varieties (especially in the northern and central regions of Russia) is the Elizaveta potato. These are, on average, one hundred grams of tubers, with smooth skin and the pulp that does not darken when cut. They retain their presentation for a long time, and each bush of this plant has a friendly formation of tubers.
Elizaveta has a good taste and high yield (30-40 tons per hectare). Among its positive qualities are good safety and resistance to many diseases. Bacterial rot and macrosporiosis are the weak points of this variety.
Recently, a new variety “Elizaveta +” was developed. It is a genetically modified vegetable that is resistant to the Colorado potato beetle. Will he be able to overcome the doubts of a common man in the street and get to the gardens and summer cottages? Scientists say it's completely safe.
To grow potatoes successfully, combine several varieties on the site at once, fertilize the soil, although sometimes practice shift growing (despite the "tolerance" of potatoes in this regard, it is better to plant late and early varieties in one area in turn, sometimes change to beets and others garden crops).
