English term or phrase:"chitting zone"
Cultivation of only the top 2-7 cm layer combined with direct consolidation leaves a very flat surface, well suited to forthcoming high speed operations. Weeds and volunteers stay in “chitting zone” and will emerge very quickly.
When the ground is only 45°F, the outside temperature can still be quite
chilly. But if you're like me, you want to have the first new potatoes on
the block. I do this by combining a method called "chitting" with a variety
of plant protectors. Chitting is an old English technique for forcing
potatoes. It is a controlled sprouting of the seed potato, which is then
planted by hand just below the surface of the ground.
