{NOW ON DEMAND} Bulking Potatoes: Increasing Yield While Maintaining Quality

The demand for increasing potato yield keeps going up in all classifications of potatoes from seed to fresh, processing and chippers.  Often in our zeal to increase yield, quality parameters such as specific gravity, internal disorders, skin set and others often unnecessarily take a back seat and often do decline.  Proper crop nutrition, taking into consideration the critical demand timings of the essential nutrients and proper application mechanics, can help to ensure the high yielding high quality potatoes that growers are looking for and the high quality that processors and consumers are demanding.  This webinar will offer physiologically based suggestions on the best crop nutrition applications for the best potato crop. This webinar will be moderated by Spudman managing editor Zeke Jennings and is sponsored by YARA North America.

Webinar participants will be eligible for 1 CCA CEU in Nutrient Management.
