The use of liquid fertilisers offer the potato grower a versatile and highly effective means of applying the major crop nutrients.
Liquid fertiliser is the most flexible and highly efficient system of providing nutrients for potatoes. All of our liquid solutions provide nutrients in a water-soluble form, so all of the NPK and S supplied is available to the growing crop. This is particularly important on rented land when the potato grower has no crop yield advantage from subsequent crops.
Liquid fertiliser can be either broadcast or more commonly “placed” (usually at 50mm to the side and 50mm below the seed tuber) at planting. Placing liquid fertiliser lends itself equally well to either a row or bed system and has the following advantages:
It is also easy to meter liquid fertiliser accurately and to vary application rates to achieve specific economic NPK levels; this would depend on soil status, potential yield as well as other factors.
