Accord

Early Season Fresh Chip Favourite

  • Round oval white fleshed tubers suitable for early Chip production.
  • Excellent taste with potential for use as an early baker.
  • Benefits from dual eelworm resistance and a good tolerance to Spraing.
  • Relatively low tuber numbers (attention to seed rate required).
  • Susceptible to Rhizoctonia, also early blight programme advised.

Advice

Do you need specific advice about seed rates, fertilisers or agronomy? Ask your local supplier or Meijer contact.

  • Start your blight program early as Accord is susceptible to Late Blight.
  • Ensure skin-set before harvesting.
  • Accord is liable to green easily. Ensure sufficient planting depth in well formed ridges.
