Slide background

A balanced crop nutrition strategy for potatoes is essential for improving the quality and yield of your potato crop.

Nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium, magnesium, calcium, sulphur, boron, copper, iron, manganese, molybdenum and zinc are all important nutrients and a deficiency in any of them can have an impact on the crop. For example, a nitrogen deficiency can lead to stunted plants which can limit crop development, while a lack of calcium can cause internal browning and hollow tubers.

Helping you understand the nutritional needs of potato crops

Keeping your potato plants appropriately fertilised with our range of smart liquid fertilisers can help improve plant growth, reduce calcium related disorders, reduce internal browning, improve uniformity, increase tuber weight, increase productive yield, improve resilience to stress, improve root development, reduce nitrogen loss to the environment and produce less ground water residue.

To help you keep your potato crops well fertilised with the right nutrients, we recommend regular applications of NHKDelta, NHCa Delta, 1-4-All and Calflux. Please refer to the guide below for dosage and application guidance.

 

  • Apply NHCaDelta or NHKDelta  following the programme
  • Best, via foliar application
  • Dose rate: 2-5 Lt/Ha
  • Compatibility with most pesticides and fertilizers

  • Apply 1-4-All with NHDelta every 14 days
  • Best, via foliar application
  • Dose rate: 2-5 Lt/Ha
  • Compatibility with most pesticides and fertilizers

  • Apply CalFlux following this program
  • Best, via foliar
  • Dose rate: 1-2 Lt/Ha
  • Compatibility with most pesticides and fertilizers
