Potato Field North Fife
Potato field near my home in North Fife showing the vegetation killed off by the sprayed application of sulphuric acid. The acid kills off any blight which grows in the leaves that migrates into the tubers also making the harvest by machine more efficient also when a field is grown and sold as seed potato the seed size is kept within limits suitable for machine sowing the following year.
