Husbandry Guidelines

This information is intended to give growers a broad understanding of the variety and its growth
requirements; it was last updated on August 2020. Please consult your own agronomist for the best practice on your farm and your end requirements.

Pre Planting

We recommend all seed should be removed from the packaging at the earliest possible opportunity and no later than 5 days after delivery. Seed should then be kept in a dry, well ventilated, frost free environment.

Planting and Growing

Commercial results suggest 33,000 tubers per ha (13,400 acre) assuming 600
tubers per 50kg. Valor has a lower Nitrogen requirement than standard maincrops (guide: 10% - 20 % less) Sencorex (metribuzin) is not recommend as a post emergence herbicide, check with your agronomist before applying pre-emergence on sandy soils.

Harvest and Storage

To maintain a good skin-finish in store, try to keep the relative humidity low and minimise free moisture, especially during the curing period.
