Recommendation for potatoes
There is a tremendous quantity of potato varieties worldwide with a lot of different utilization purposes. As the main target is to produce potatoes with highest yields and quality, each nutrient plays a role in maintaining a sufficient result while some are extraordinarily essential for high quality. The potato has a number of growth stages from sprout emergence through to maturation and senescence. The nutritional needs of the potato plant changes with each growth stage. Developing a complete potato program begins with understanding the soil properties, the soil type and the specific nutritional needs of each of these stages of growth.
Nitrogen is the most difficult nutrient to recommend and control. It is the most critical one for potato quality. Enough Nitrogen needs to be applied pre-plant to provide an even steady growth and to suppress diseases from nutrient stress. Nitrogen is important for quick vegetative growth and high tuber yields. 90% of the total plant Nitrogen is accumulated before flowering. High contents in Nitrogen result in earlier maturation and lower starch yields. Deficiencies show when the entire plant turns light green. Young leaves remain green while older leaves turn yellow to light brown and become senescent.
