Why is peel strength necessary for potatoes?

Potatoes only get a firm skin when they are ripe. Ripening occurs either through uncontrolled natural dieback due to drought and potato blight. Alternatively, targeted desiccation allows potatoes to have the right size, starch content at a desired time to be harvested regardless of weather.

A firm skin at the right time before harvest is critical for low damage at harvest and later storability. Otherwise, potatoes will rot and there will be food waste. Hybrid Herbicide is helping to make potato cultivation a whole lot more sustainable without the use of chemicals in siccation.


Robust and extremely powerful – the volt.cube supplies the electrical energy.


Working widths of up to 12 m allow fast and safe siccation.


The residue-free liquid lowers the electrical resistance of the plants.
