Increasing Nutrient Efficiency in Potatoes with PeKacid and Agrolution pHLow

How can you make the most of phosphorus soil fertility and fertilizer applications? Potatoes often respond to fertilizer P at soil test levels that would be considered very high for most others crops. Even with high starting soil test P, potatoes often require additional P fertility to optimize yield and quality. High levels of P in soil are often unavailable to plants, especially with elevated soil pH, and inefficient use of P fertilizer application is an environmental concern. When acidifying water-soluble fertilizers, like Pekacid and Agrolution pHLow are used as a source of P in nutrient management programs, the acidifying effect can optimize the availability of applied nutrition, and unlock soil nutrient reserves, resulting in increased nutrient efficiency for higher quality, improved yield, and cost-effective results. Join agronomists Dr. AJ Foster and Dr. Jason Haegele to explore phosphorus management for potatoes, including digging into the latest research on managing soil and fertilizer pH as a tool for making the most of phosphorus.
