Meeting nitrogen requirements mainly through the use of a highly stable form of fertilizer can minimize nitrogen losses, provide nitrogen amounts closer to the plant’s actual needs, and stabilize or increase potato yields. Using a conventional starter fertilizer makes up for the delay in nitrogen release from the slow release fertilizer in the spring.
From 2017 to 2019
The fertilization strategy outlined here will help improve crop yields and the environment.
