The article reflects the results of studies of various methods of preparation of sod-podzolic loamy soil and application of mineral fertilizers that ensure high yield and quality of potatoes when grown in the Central region of Russia. The technology is proposed, in the application of which the yield of potatoes in the experiment reached 54,2 t/ha, the total damage to tubers did not exceed 9,7%, and the maturation of potatoes during long-term storage was not lower than 95,0%.

Keywords: potatoes, tillage system, yield, fertilizers, fuel consumption, potato harvester, storability of tubers.
