Early variety with a great package of agronomics

Early maincrop variety producing very high yields of long-oval tubers with pale-yellow flesh. Excellent bright skin finish with shallow eyes. Higher dry matter (typically 22%) giving good taste and eating qualities which are well received by customers. Kingsman has superior blackleg and damage resistance.

▪ Kingsman can be planted early into warming soils
except where powdery scab is a high risk
▪ Kingsman generally has a high yield potential
▪ Variety will develop a good large rooting system, which provides good nutrient efficiency and excellent heat and drought tolerance
▪ Variety can produce high yields unirrigated and performs well in hot climates
▪ Kingsman maintains a strong canopy into maturity which might hinder skin set in some seasons and can delay dry matter accumulation
