OriGin Farm moved from organic dairy to organic potatoes due to demand.
issues with washing on our reds, being
the color looks washed out. That makes
them pretty much non-marketable,
particularly in an organic setting. If we
grow reds, we do try to dig them earlier
to save the color.
" We had a real bad experience with
Satina one time, " Moyer said. " We are
non-irrigated and got pretty dry. Satina
can tend to heat sprout, if you get a dry
spell, followed by a big rush of water.
In conventional settings they spray
(Royal MH-30SG to reduce the number
of volunteer potatoes the following
spring because of its ability to control
sprouting) on them. "

organic seed, possibly through brokers
or co-ops, Moyer said. " Obviously the
bigger you're packaging, you're going to
get a better price. There is a lot of huge
pricing variation out there on organic
seed. When we first got into it, we were
looking to pay anywhere from 80 to 90
cents; now we can get organic seed down
to 42, 43 cents.
OriGin keeps its seed dry, using a
straight fir bar dust as a seed treatment.
" Getting straight fir bark without
fungicides is quite a hassle. Two years
ago, we bought quite a bit of straight fir
bark from Wisconsin. It's a really fine,
dry dust powder that helps heal that
cut-seed surface. We got a lot better
germination and seed vitality by using
it, and it's really pretty cheap. So that's
something I would definitely suggest. "
He said some growers do not to
cut organic seed " because they feel it
produces that whole issue of cuts, seed
rock, etc. There are some guys who are
trying to source smaller seed, and then
they don't cut it. The downside to that
is it increases your seed cost quite a bit.
We cut all of our seed. "
STANDARD TILLAGING
" We try to not work the ground a
whole lot, " said Moyer, who also is on
the agronomy team at Fertrell. " For
potatoes, just for weed control, it's been
our experience the more you work
it, cover mulch it, go over it multiple
times, it just makes more of a firm seed
bed. We'll typically roll-bar mow it, go
across it one time with a disc and then
we plant. We don't overwork it. "
Dairy manure or poultry litter is
typically applied in the fall or during
the January-February period. The farm
applies 1,000 pounds per acre of organic
fertilizer in a row, two feet below the
seed. Using too much manure can
create scab and growth cracks.
Excess manure applied the year
before will create additional scab.
Depending on what varieties of
potatoes are planted, they might not be
as susceptible to scab, " so you might not
have as much issue with that, but it's
