Botanical Features

Agricultural Features

High yielding variety with high number of tubers per plant and very low tuber deformities. This variety should be grown with an in-row spacing of 30 cm. Tubers are concentrated in the hill, which facilitates harvest. High specific gravity. Medium dormancy period. Good storability; maintains excellent chip quality in long-term storage.

Remark: AC Glacier Chip can be stored at 8 °C instead of 10 °C which is the conventional temperature for chip stock. The advantage for producers is longer maintenance of chip quality and fewer storage problems.
