This variety grows very good in dry conditions.
Follow growing instructions to
achieve optimum results.
Rather late / late
Pre-sprouting and heat treatment are recommended
due to rather long dormancy period.
Requires a moderate N-fertilization, less than
the variety Bintje. A divided dose is
Morene gives good results on all kind of soils
with a good structure. Do not plant Morene too
early. Planting depth just below ground level.
Rapid emergence and rather quick, early
development, covering the soil very well in a
Morene as rather few
stems and a rather low tuber number per plant. A
more narrow planting distance in comparison with
Bintje is recommended. Morene has a rather early
Haulm killing before harvest is recommended.
Morene is hardly susceptible to internal bruising
and mechanical damage. If the tubers are lifted
with care at maturity, harvest does not need to
cause problems. Mother-tubers should be removed
Morene has a good dormancy and stores well. Good
ventilation during storage is recommended.
Resistant to potato cyst nematodes R01 + Ro4 (A).
Only slightly susceptible to foliage blight and
Morene is fairly
resistant to common scab. Drought resistance is
Morene is a high yielding consumption variety
with oval to long-oval tubers and creamy flesh
