Innovation in organic potato cultivation.
The participatory on-farm research of the Solace EU Horizon 2020 project was launched in Hungary in December 2018 with a first workshop of organic potato growers. During 2019 we will jointly investigate how new hybrid potatoes respond to different nutrient dosages at organic farm operations throughout the country. Farmers participating in the research will receive organic potato seedlings grown from hybrid seed, which has the advantage that seed born infections are reduced to zero. Tubers of hybrid potato can be replicated by farmers themselves afterwards, if needed.
