Cropping sequence and length of rotation play an important role in potato production. Too often, growers are forced to base their cropping system decisions on short-term economic survival. Our market-based economy rewards economic efficiency and has helped push the trend to larger farms with lower production costs. Improving economic efficiency, with large, specialized potato equipment, means farming more potato acres. If the farm size can‟t be increased, then the rotation must be shortened to…

Different vegetable crop rotations affect soil microbial communities and soilborne diseases of potato and onion: literature review and a long-term field evaluation
TLDR
Understanding of effects of crop rotations on soil microbial community characteristics, soilborne diseases and crop productivity of potatoes and onions grown in a soil and an area where intensive vegetable production is common is broadened.
A long-term vegetable crop rotation study to determine effects on soil microbial communities and soilborne diseases of potato and onion
TLDR
This long-term crop rotation study has demonstrated the benefits of a ‘sustainable’ rotation where potatoes or onions were grown every fourth growing season, with different crops grown in the intervening years, compared with the conventional consecutive biennial crops of potato and onion.
UAS imaging-based decision tools for arid winter wheat and irrigated potato production management
ABSTRACT Small unmanned aerial systems (UAS) are gaining global attention for rapid image-based decision making in agricultural production. In this study, the aim was to evaluate UAS-based imagery
Best practice document for the coexistence of genetically modified potato with conventional and organic farming
The Technical Working Group (TWG) for Potato is the fourth one of the European Coexistence Bureau (ECoB) and is established for elaboration of the coexistence issues between genetically modified (GM)
Investigating the impact of soil tillage and crop rotation on the bacterial microbiome associated with winter oilseed rape under Irish agronomic conditions
TLDR
The objective of this research was to establish a theory that can be applied to the determinants of infectious disease in animals and show clear patterns in the response of these animals to antibiotics.
