In 2004, 2005, an 2006 we tried just about anything ... a lot of reaction situations and we were losing bins every year. Foliar sprays were helping, but often too little, too late. Last year we applied 20L/acre PowerStart and cut back our N by 40 lbs/acre.We applied three 20 L/acre irrigation applications of Pivot Power. We had a Frito Day with all the growers and they commented on the fact that the fields were too healthy.
We had to kill the potatoes in the middle of August; they were way too green.
Next year we’re using the same program, but are going to cut our N by another 40 pounds.
