Though farmers have been cultivating potatoes in all the districts of the state, in 25 potato-growing districts of the state, potato farming has been done in a planned way. As many as 28,000 seeds (weighing 50 grams each) per acre have been sown in districts including Agra, Kannauj, Farrukhabad, Etah, Fatehpur, Kanpur, Allahabad, Varanasi, Unnao, Lucknow, Barabanki, Sultanpur, Gorakhpur, and Basti. “Seeds were sown in three lines at a distance of 28 inches. The seeds are planted at a 9-inch depth. Apart from this, NPK (nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium) was used at the rate of one quintal on one acre and 50 kg of urea per acre has been fixed. Potato experts say that this is the best scientific experiment for better productivity of potatoes,” said an official.

He further said: “Potato cultivation done in this way will get positive results. This time UP will definitely gain second or third position in the country in terms of productivity, taking a jump up from sixth position.”
