A month before planting potatoes in the garden, remove the tubers from storage (cellar, cellar, basement). The loop, leaving only the good, as for the storage of potatoes could shrivel up and even to rot. Tear off all the appeared sprouts, planting will be new and strong.
To properly sprout potatoes before planting, you first need to process the tubers against pathogens of different diseases, which can be on the skin. To do this, dissolve in a bucket of potassium permanganate. The solution should be bright pink. Put seed potatoes in the net and lower it into a bucket, treat the tubers for 10 minutes. Lay on the floor of the dismantled cardboard boxes and pour them processed potatoes, not wiping. Thus disinfect all seed tubers.
If you want to sprout the potatoes before planting, use growth stimulants. In selling a lot of them, is not difficult. Dilute the drug, according to instructions, and process the tubers. If you do not have time to sprout the tubers and will plant them without sprouts, which is actually desirable to treat the potatoes before putting in the hole.
Now you can start to grow potatoes. If you have a bit of planting material, just lay it on the same cardboard boxes and so leave. If you are planning to plant a few acres, you can grow potatoes in plastic boxes from vegetables. Only fill them halfway, otherwise the sprouts will be long from lack of light.
Finally, before planting, the sprouted potatoes treated with ash. To make it easy. Just sprinkle sifted ash tubers directly in the boxes and shake them a bit. But if you when landing additionally put a handful of ashes directly into the hole, such a pest as a wireworm, forget the way to your potatoes.
