'BRSIPR Bel' is a potato cultivar for frying as chips and shoestring sticks with oval tubers, and an attractive appearance, with medium shallow eyes, white smooth skin, and cream flesh. It shows low glucose content and light color chips and shoestring sticks similar to 'Atlantic'. Maturity is medium-late and dormancy is relatively long. It presents high yielding potential, with high percentage of marketable tubers, high specific gravity, and low incidence of tubers with physiological disorders. It is moderately susceptible to Phytophthora infestans, which can be managed effectively with fungicides, moderately resistant to early blight (Alternaria solani) and to Potato Virus Y (PVY).
