We believe that the lower yield of potato tubers by 7.4 t/ha at BTM compared with GM1 (Table 2) was due to lower availability of N in the soil, when BTM was used (compared with GM1) and further supported by less favorable conditions for growth tubers due to the highest incidence of the Colorado potato beetle larvae (Table 2) and the high defoliation of haulm. It also shows a negative moderate correlation CPB larvae and yield of ware potatoes at BTM (r2 = 15.9%).
