Boosting fertility through petiole and leaf tissue analysis

Petiole and leaf tissue analysis represent important tools in fertility management of potato crops. New advances in tissue analysis of potato crops could give growers an early warning of nutrient deficits that could be impinging on yield potential — as well as allow them sufficient time to take remedial action, according to Jez Wardman, a plant nutrition specialist at fertilizer company Yara UK. “While soil analysis can help identify potential issues and plan fertilizer programs,” he says, “petiole or leaf tissue analysis is a far more effective agronomic tool to tailor in-season inputs.”
