Canadian company solving nutrient management problems for potato growers

The Leaf Evaluated-Nutrient System (LENS) from Picketa is the first step in the company’s quest to solve nutrient management problems for potato growers through the increasing supply chain and climate challenges.

Over the last year, Picketa staff have worked hard on developing the LENS™ management system. The LENS system launched a month ago on November 15th, marking almost two years of scientific research and development. Picketa now has its LENS packages sold across Canada for the 2023 season, with limited availability.

Watch the 2 min clip below to learn what the folks at Picketa System do.

Picketa’s client Bell Crop Services has decided to implement the company’s technology in all 15 farms they work with in Canada’s Northwest New Brunswick province. Using the LENS™ will allow the company to expand its services to more farms, bringing them immediate value by integrating technology and data effortlessly in their growing operations.

LENS™ allows agronomists unlimited plant tissue analysis without an agricultural laboratory. The invaluable information given by plant tissue analysis helps growers and agronomists quickly and more accurately identify whether plant nutritional problems emanate from a poor supply of nutrients or other growth-limiting factors. Agriculture professionals can then adjust their fertigation or apply foliar products to mitigate yield and quality loss.

No matter the crop, plant tissue analysis is worthwhile to help determine nutrient needs. As crop values continue to rise, tools such as this and soil sampling are essential to fiscal and yield success.
