Planting care and agricultural technology are not difficult. You can grow potatoes from seeds or tubers. For seed propagation, the seedling method is recommended, this will shorten the growing season. Potatoes are planted in narrow rows, fertile light soil is preferred. Drip irrigation is desirable, as well as 1-2 times feeding with mineral complexes or organic matter. For more information about what to fertilize, how and when to apply fertilizer, how to do it correctly when planting, read the additional articles on the site.

Advantages and disadvantages
The main advantages of the variety include:
- pleasant taste;
- high nutrient content;
- early amicable ripening;
- excellent productivity;
- harvested potatoes are well stored;
- seed material does not degenerate;
- drought resistance;
- tolerance to temperature changes;
- immunity to underlying diseases.
The variety is stored well, but you can read about the terms and temperature, what problems there may be in the articles on our website. Also read about how to store potatoes in winter, on the balcony, in the refrigerator, in boxes, peeled.

Like other early varieties, Taisia is often grown from seed. With this method, a good harvest can be obtained only after a year; in the first season, the tubers will be small, but quite suitable as planting material.
When propagating by tubers, seed material is pickled, dried, treated with growth stimulants. Potatoes must be germinated before planting.... For cultivation, specimens with the strongest and brightest sprouts are selected.
It is necessary to plant tubers when the soil warms up to 10 degrees. It is not recommended to delay planting, in spring the soil is saturated with natural moisture, which guarantees the friendly growth of potatoes. Humus and wood ash are introduced into the soil. The potatoes are planted at a distance of 20 cm from each other, the row spacing is 60 cm.
Potatoes are sensitive to moisture levels... In the rainy season, rot may appear, a long drought reduces the number of tubers, they turn out to be small. The ideal option is to organize a drip irrigation system that regulates the moisture level.
Wood ash saves from stagnant water. During the planting season, they huddle 1-2 times, at the same time destroying the weeds. Read also how to grow potatoes without hilling and weeding.
The first tubers can be dug in 45 days after planting. But the main crop should be harvested at the end of the growing season, it is at this time that the potatoes become especially tasty and healthy.
Spraying, like the use of other chemicals in growing root crops, has both ardent adherents and those who are against the use of chemistry.
There are many ways to grow potatoes. On our site you can get acquainted with Dutch technologies, learn a lot of useful information about growing under straw, in bags, in barrels, in boxes.
Diseases and pests
The variety is quite resistant to the main diseases of the nightshade: potato crayfish, rhizoctonia, leaf spot, various viruses, and golden cyst nematode. Under unfavorable conditions, damage is possible with ordinary scab, root or apical rot, black leg. Early ripening saves plants from late blight. For preventive purposes, the bushes can be sprayed with an aqueous solution of copper-containing preparations.
In early summer, potatoes can be affected by aphids, spider mites, Colorado beetles. Timely weeding or mulching of the soil will help to save planting. In the case of severe lesions, insecticides are used in aerosols. To prevent the appearance of a wireworm, the seed is pickled, and the soil is watered with fungicides.
