In ecologic potato production existing problems with thermic-mechanic desiccation are in focus, in conventionell production the ending permission of Deiquat (Reglone). Two new methods should be adapted: the  ElektroSiKa-system, a new method using electrical power, and a method using Haulm pluckers / root cutters, wich is new in the German market.  The existing haulm desiccation systems on three farms will be evaluated, the new technics tested in the field and integrated in a new system.
