Marabel preferably should be grown on soils in good agricultural condition. Uniform water and nutrient supply is advantageous. Soils with high risk of spraing (internal rust spots) should be avoided.

Marabel should be fertilized with slightly retained amounts of nitrogen, however, in some soils nitrogen accented leaf fertilization just before tuber setting may increase tuberisation rate. In order to ensure dry matter or starch content, respectively, potassium manuring should be done with chloride-free fertilizer (potassium sulphate).

Marabel is growing uniform medium to large sized tubers. The tuberisation rate is medium, the recommended plant density is approx. 43,000 plants/ha.

Marabel is yielding very nice tubers with excellent suitability for washing and prepacking. Due to the specific internal quality, this variety has also very good suitability for peeling and other convenience products
