Australia: Potato growers perfect nutrient regimes

Potato growers across Australia could soon be provided a formula that tells them the perfect level of phosphorous needed for best yields and healthier soil. That’s the aim of a $400,000 study run by Potatoes South Australia, which is hoping a new and more accurate phosphorous test could refine farmers’ nutrient regimes. The Diffuse Gradient in Thin-films (DGT) test, developed by the University of Adelaide, has already been successfully applied in wheat, canola, barley and pea industries.
