This Gro-Stop App provides information on potato varieties and
their sensitivity when treated with (Gro-Stop Basis or Ready) at harvest.
Research has been conducted by Certis on a range of different potato
varieties. Only those varieties have been included which have been tested
for at least 2 different seasons. Sensitivity can vary depending on the
growing season and harvesting conditions. The skin burn index is a tool to
support decision making on best use of sprout suppressants. Treatment at
harvest will generally require much lower total dose of CIPC than treatment
by fogging, but this advantage has to be carefully weighed versus the
increased risk for reduced skin quality.
Skin burn index
The Certis skin burn index and the sensitivity class are an indication for
the possible development of skin burns when tubers are treated at harvest
(store loading) with Gro-Stop Ready, Gro-Stop Basis or Gro-Stop Dust.
