Excerpt from Potatoes, a Money Crop: How to Grow, Fertilize, Spray and Harvest Them at a Profit; Containing the Story of a Profitable Potato Crop
Potatoes will succeed on a variety of soils, doing best on a medium to light loam. Early crops of potatoes are, however, raised at a great profit on light and sandy? Soils, while heavy soils will give profitable crops of late potatoes, provided that such soils are well drained.
It is, however, useless to attempt to grow potatoes at a profit on wet, heavy and ill-drained soils. Such soils, however, may be rendered suitable for potato growing by a thorough system of drainage and subsequent plow ing in of green crops.
In general heavy clay soils are unsuitable for potatoes, the tubers being soggy, poorly shaped, and subject to rot.
Potatoes as a rule give the largest yields upon new soils; that is land just taken up from grass or clover. This is not true of all conditions, how ever, as on heavy soils where the sod is extremely tough, the potato crop may be preceded by a crop of corn.
