Sugar management is an important factor for potato crops, particularly those that end up as potato chips or French fries. This talk will help growers, consultants, and researchers--as well as others involved in pre-harvest and post-harvest management--develop potatoes with desirable sugar levels. In this presentation, we will discuss sugar management in various stages of crop management and storage. These stages cover in-season practices, particularly in relation to potato crop maturity and stress; best practices and timing during potato harvest; managing preconditioning in storage, and storage management.
