Skin Burn Index
The Skin Burn Index provides information on potato varieties and their sensitivity when treated with Gro-Stop 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 the 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.
