Soil and Soil Preparation: Sweet potatoes are grown in every state and well-prepared soil of every type produces the best results. Lots of loose soil in a well-prepared ridge gives the potatoes a place to grow. Rows should be about 36 inches apart and fertilizer can be added as the rows are made.
Planting: "Set" plants about 12 inches apart as soon as possible ... preferably near sundown to avoid exposure to the hot sun. If weather or other conditions prevent immediate planting, place roots in real wet, muddy soil in a shady spot or place roots in fresh, cool water. After planting, cultivate to minimize weed competition and irrigate if soil becomes too dry.
Maturity: Simply examine an average hill and if they have reached desirable size, they are ready to be harvested.
Digging and Storing: Use care in taking the potatoes from the ground, being careful not to bruise them. After digging, dry potatoes thoroughly and then store at 55 to 60 degrees. Do not handle the potatoes again until you are ready to prepare them for the table.
