The planting will take place earliest in April-May and harvesting in August/mid October of each year. Preparation and management of the trial site will be according to conventional agricultural practice. Tubers will be removed by hand and transported to the laboratory in closed bags, where they will be destroyed after analyses. The notifier announces that the year following the release, the field plot will remain fallow or will be planted with cereals. Emerging volunteers will be destroyed prior to flower setting. The notifier announces that monitoring will be extended until there is a whole season without any potato volunteers.
