BAVATOP

Bavatop is an interesting starch variety for the production of high starch yield even on soils with problems of nematodes.

VARIETY DESCRIPTION

YIELD

Very high starch content (up to 24%) very high starch yield, medium-high number of tubers; regular calibration.

RESISTANCES

  • Nematodes: Ro 1, 3, 4, 5; Pa 2, 3
  • Y-Virus (PVY): high
  • potato leaf roll: medium
  • late blight: high
  • black leg: high
  • common scab: medium
  • potatoe wart disease: 1

TUBER

Short-oval shape; depth of eyes shallow to medium light yellow flesh.

PLANT

Intensive blue coloured flowers; erect, tall plant.

AGRONOMIC ADVICE

Bavatop should be planted in rows allowing 32 – 34 cm in a well prepared seedbed with regular water supply. Seed tubers should be warmed up before planting; Bavatop shows no sensitive reaction to late Metribuzin application; Due to a good tolerance to late blight, spraying intervals can be less than average; N-supply up to 150 kg N / ha and potassium up to 300 kg / ha is recommended.
