1.Choose Sunlight Spot
Choosing the best spot for growing potatoes usually involves considering factors such as sunlight, soil quality, drainage, and space. Because they require at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight every day you need to choose such a spot that could receive ample sunlight throughout the day. However, excessive heat can cause damage to their leaf and roots. So, keep in mind that the location does not get too hot.
Potatoes can not thrive in poor drainage as this might lead to root rot and other diseases. Poor drainage also causes the tubers to rot in the ground and thus it is important to ensure that the soil has good drainage before planting these versatile starchy tubers.
