Chitting Potatoes - Of benefit or a waste of time?

There seems to be some uncertainty among the 'experts' as to whether chitting seed potatoes produces a heavier crop than planting unchitted seed potatoes. If your seed potatoes arrive in January then the decision is made for you. We have chitted ours for years and benefitted from good crops. Any low yield has been due to it being too dry, too wet, too cold, blight or slug attack. We have no evidence to suggest that chitting causes potato crops not to flourish.

  1. I did not know that there are some debate about chitting or not chitting to produce many crop. Interesting.

  2. We've just stuck to chitting Diana as it has always worked so why change?
