Protect Your Potato Crop from Rodents

It's been a tough few years for potato growers.

The unpredictable weather has played havoc on the ability to safely lift all of the crops and the wet weather has made storage more tricky.

Since Lockdown has meant that the nation's restaurants were shut for most of the summer (and now they've shut again!)

Once you've put in the hard work to get them into the store, it's important to check them daily to catch any disease before it spreads.

Diseases such as dry & soft rot, tuber blight, scurfs, and scabs can affect the quality and the quantity of the potatoes as they come out of storage - which means less money for pints at the local! While you're checking on your potatoes for signs of disease, keep an eye out for the signs of rodents in your shed as potatoes make a great ratty snack over the winter months!

You need to look out for rat droppings, rub marks, rat holes, and, most importantly, nibbled spuds.

If you do see signs of rat infestation, head to your nearest Lodi stockist to pick up some Lodi Gems.
