'We have a mixed farm with both dairy cattle and arable farming activities’, explains Dany Vromman, a potato grower from Wallonia in Belgium. ‘We grow traditional crops like sugar beet, maize, cereals, potatoes and grass. We have been growing potatoes on our farm for four generations’.
’The varieties we grow are Innovator, Lady Anna and Felsina. Innovator potatoes are extremely high yielding, have regular shaped tubers and offer good disease resistance. Lady Anna has a very attractive, pale yellow skin and regular sized tubers. It does, however, require a bit more attention at emergence. The medium-early variety Felsina perfectly suits the lighter soils on our farm. And, by planting Felsina we can avoid any possible soil-borne diseases.
