Potato Systems Planner
headline bar
Version 2, March 2005

The Potato Systems Planner is intended to aid growers in selecting crop rotations and making management decisions based on first-hand research information. In this CD, you will find general and detailed information on the impacts of 15 crop rotations on diseases, economics, yield, soil microorganisms, and nitrogen cycling. Potential profitability can be estimated for two-year and three-year potato rotations using an Economics Calculator. A Disease Database is also provided to assist growers in identifying and managing many diseases found on potato.

We hope this tool proves useful and would sincerely appreciate receiving your feedback. To request for a free copy of this CD, Please contact Dr. Robert Larkin, NAA ARS NEPSWL Plant Pathology, at
