Plasticulture for Sweet Potatoes

By In Vegetables On May 26, 2017


Sweet potatoes are planted from the end of May through the middle of June in our region. Commonly production is on ridges in conventionally tilled soil. I was recently asked about the potential to plant sweet potatoes using plasticulture (plastic mulch and drip irrigation). While not common in our region because of the cost, this has been a practice used further north where season extension is needed for production.  See more here.
