Residue Management On-farm Trials - Potato Production  

By modifying tillage practices, producers are able to obtain 20 to 30 % soil surface cover from the previous crop’s residue after potatoes are planted. The previous crop could be a cereal or a forage treated with glyphosate. Residue Management (RM) in potato production was introduced to PEI in 1993, and within 5 or 6 years nearly 20,000 acres of potato production utilized this management system.
