earthing up potatoes - drying out issue

I've read that earthing up potatoes is necessary for good yields, that is tuber formations.
However,
sometimes when I earth up my potatoes (growing in 30 gallon fabric pots) the shoots droop and the leaves turn brown.
The shoot then dies.

Any advice on earthing up potatoes please feel free to add to this topic.

Thanks

What kind of corn soldier are you? And don't say "kernel" - that's only for this tiny ad:
