The growing season for each spud starts when the seed potato is planted in the ground. Each variety has a different length growing season, but in general in Wisconsin, this lasts from April until late July-October.

During the growing season, a technique called “hilling” is implemented. Hilling mounds the ground around the planted rows of potatoes. This gives the plant more room to grow within the hill. Hilling is done twice throughout the beginning of the growing season; once a few weeks after planting and then once more approximately a month later.

Throughout the entire growing season, Heartland Farms and independent consultants regularly check each field to monitor growth progress, look for any pest issues, take soil moisture readings, take petiole (leaf) samples and many more things. Each field is monitored in person to ensure the best potatoes possible are produced. When necessary, precision irrigation systems are run on the fields. Most fields planted by Heartland Farms are equipped with telemetry. Telemetry allows each irrigation system to be monitored and controlled remotely by select computers at the farm. This system allows for more controllability, monitoring and water conservation.
