Trouble with potato common scab? Choose Hetman!


Variety characteristic:

Hetman is a medium height plant with a compact canopy. Hetman provides about 12 tubers middle in the ridge. The big-sized, uniform tubers with low share of undersizes characterize this variety. If the cultivation takes place on the better soils, planting distances must be optimized. It is recommended to increase the plant density in order to obtain tubers of smaller size. Hetman is a stable yielding variety even in years with different precipitation distribution. The outstanding attribute of the Hetman variety is no flesh discoloration after cooking. It has a good appearance with uniform size distribution which is ideal for pre packing. The undoubted advantage of this variety is that it is not affected by common scab. Considering this fact, it can be successfully cultivated on soils where actinomycetes Streptomyces scabies causing potato scab live. It maintains its high food quality until late spring.
