We have seen some excellent results in our 2016 potato field trials. Trials undertaken by growers in Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire on four varieties: Markies, Maris Piper, Sagitta and Divaa have shown yield increases averaging 20% with the use of multi-nutrient phosphite PK MAXX+.

Increases in tuber size, uniformity and yield

Treated trial plots outperformed control plots on yield, tuber size and tuber uniformity, showing how a small investment to optimise nutrition can bring significant gains in marketable yield.
