hi reg had the same problem this year seconds and main crop badly affected

muck dung in over winter which i feel did not help as ground was very wet on digging

up spuds 1st early not affected so will growing these only bit worried a bout ground

left with slug and rotten tubers so will be have carefull next year spoke to supplier

cause most likely weather related

could also depend how many tubers were planted per grow bag to many tubers planted can effect size of crops
