Agricultural Features

High yielding, widely adapted, suffers very little from magnesium deficiency. Tubers keep fairly well (do not sprout early), have low starch content, are not subject to blackening of the flesh or second growth.

Because of high tuber set, recommended spacing in the row are 40 to 45 cm for table and 20 cm for seed production.

Immune: virus A.
Moderately resistant: leaf roll.
Susceptible: common scab, fusarium dry rot (Fusarium oxysporum), potato wart, and viruses X and Y.
