Growing instructions (crisps potatoes)
The 1010 is a mid early variety, developed for the crisps industry. The tubers are round to round oval shaped and have a light yellow skin and yellow flesh. The cooking type is BC with a high dry matter content of 24.3%. The high dry matter and good quality for crisps make this variety very suitable for the local crisping industries. The variety is being introduced in Europe and North Africa.
Medium early, with early tuber set.
The 1010 has a rather long dormancy period and it is advised to pre germinate two weeks before planting. Don’t plant in to cold soils.
This variety is rather strong against spraing and common scab and suitable for all soil types. The root system is well developed and very adaptable to the local conditions. It is advised not to apply Metribuzin treatments because of the risk of severe foliar discolorations.
The 1010 requires a slightly lower then normal N-fertilisation, well adapted to the soil analysis. If possible apply 2/3 at planting and 1/3 of the total quantity directly after tuberisation. For Phosphate the advise is around 120 kg per hectare and for Potassium a slightly higher then normal quantity is recommended to avoid black spot. Take care of the Magnesium and Manganese availability.
This variety has generally no problems with defoliation. The tubers easily get a set skin, but still have to be harvested carefully because of the high dry matter content.
Because of the good dormancy period storage for a longer period is possible. Also storage diseases give generally no problems with this variety.
Resistance to diseases
The 1010 is resistant to Potato Cyst nematodes Ro1 and to wart disease fysio 1. Susceptible to late blight and normal application are needed. Susceptible to virus Y and rather strong against common scab.
