Your choice of potato varieties does make a difference
What a difference the weather made to the yield of potatoes this year (2013). Compared to last year the yield was in most cases doubled. The dry weather also resulted in less tubers being attacked by slugs. Compare the results for 2013 to last year after planting a number of different varieties. The figures below result from the planting of nine tubers per variety.The yields are taken after the slug damaged and tiny tubers were removed. Percentage yield is a fraction of good tubers out of total yield.
