Potato Production in Nicaragua

The 2012 emphasis was on technical information transfer for:

  1. Seed potato – understanding seed physiology and comprehensive Best Management Practices (BMP’s)
  2. Potato Storage
  3. Re-emphasis on adjusting specific fundamental practices: rates of potassium and phosphorous fertilizer use
  4. Phytopathological assessment of disease issues; particularly the “Paratrioza” complex involving the insect vector Bactericera cockerelli and the causal bacteria Candidatus liberibacter

PotatoesHand cutting seed potatoes is a very practical means of reducing seed costs and fits well into the hand-based labor pattern of Nicaraguan potato production.
