Cultivation Recommendation

It is recommended to warm seed prior to planting. Arizona is sensitive to Sencor - do not use post emergence; it will affect the set negatively. Do not de-sprout more than once.

Storage Recommendation

Arizona has quite a good dormancy and is therefore suitable for longer storage periods at 5⁰C.

Resistance

Arizona is slightly resistant to common scab. Its resistance to tuber blight, virus Yntn, and virus Yn is good. Arizona is resistant to PCN Ro1 and Ro4.
