Hi there, I would like to plant corn and potatoes on a back field, and am thinking of burning it soon...will potatoes like that extra ash, or what else would go good there? thanks

I doubt if the small amount of potassium made available by burning grassland, undergrowth or the like would make any difference to whatever you crop there unless the soil is definitely low in that element. Potassium goes mainly towards the plants production of fruits and seeds.
