Cultivation advice

Soil type

Alegria can be grown on all soil types. Pre-sprouting is not necessary. In terms of weed control we recommend using milder means, but Alegria is not sensitive to the normal dose of Sencor. Alegria is best not planted in a cold soil due to slight sensitivity to Rhizoctonia. A double treatment of soil and seed potatoes is strongly recommended. In extreme drought prone soils and in the Mediterranean is watering recommended.
