Examine your soil visually and with your hands to determine the need for additional water. Potatoes are
shallow rooted and need light, frequent watering at least once a week with drip or furrow irrigation during
the growing season to maintain uniform moisture content in the soil.
Proper irrigation will keep your plants vigorous. If soil is alternately wet and dry, the potatoes can
become rough and knobby.
