GB potato lifting report 2

Published on

GB potato lifting report 2

Following a sustained period of heavy rain in late September, the soils moved from being too dry to too wet in just a few days. The unsettled weather persisted throughout early and mid-October resulting in challenges to potato lifting, especially for those on heavier land. Where weather and ground conditions allowed, lifting progress was steady and growers on well-draining soils cleared good areas.
