AGATA – very early, high yielding, edible variety with very nice, smooth skin, which is ideal for washing. The flesh is pale yellow. The tubers are oval, uniform in shape, with shallow eyes. The regular appearance of tubers, shape and suitability for washing makes Agata an excellent variety for retail packaging. Consumption type AB, tuber texture is firm after cooking, consumption quality is rather good and dry matter content is rather low. Large number of tubers. Agata can be grown on most types of soil but it is quite susceptible to common scab. Agata is best suited for growing in Southern and Central Europe. Initial sprouting is not necessary. Removing sprouts more than once has a negative effect on the number of tubers. Cultivating distance of tubers in size 35/50 is about 27cm (50000 plants / ha). Using Sencor does not cause any problems. Thanks to the very nice shape of the tubers and smooth skin this variety is sought by packaging companies co-operating with supermarkets.
