Azerbaijan growers work with new potato varieties

New foreign varieties of potatoes are being grown in Azerbaijan. A local farmer said: “Currently, potatoes are planted in six districts on an area of ​​340 hectares. I do not use local varieties, growing only foreign ones, and sell seed potatoes to farmers. The goal is to grow foreign varieties in Azerbaijan. Potatoes are mainly planted in Jalilabad, Shamkir, Tovuz, Agstafa, Gazakh, and Gabala districts.”

“So far, about 50 varieties of seed potatoes have been delivered to Azerbaijan, of which only 14 are planted. The rest did not take root because of the climate. The overall yield in the country in 2020 amounted to 25-30 tons per hectare, while our performance was at the level of 42-45 tons. Potato seeds are mainly delivered from Germany, Holland, and Turkey.”
