Verlin Rockey, of Milk Ranch Potatoes, told me years ago that you either
cut and plant immediately, or you cut and let sit long enough to callus.
Usually, we cut and plant immediately, and it works well as long as we
don't get a week of rain afterwards to rot them. His other piece of
advice was to make sure that the soil temperature was above 50 degrees

Subject: [Market-farming] Curing, or Cut-n-Plant, potato seed pieces
Any opinions on the value of cutting potato seed pieces and letting them
cure a week or two before planting?
Or, just cut-n-plant the potato seed pieces and plant them in the ground
the same day?
We got a sack of potatoes and this weekend would be the early planting
dates for our region in Central Texas.
In the past I've done the cut-n-plant
method with OK results, but maybe there's "more" to good taters.
