During the season, looking at tissue data of potatoes gives a grower a scorecard of how their crop is doing. However, classical methods for interpreting tissue samples and “critical values” are out of date. Sebastian Margarit, director of agronomy for NutriAg, talks about some misconceptions about nutrient use efficiency in potatoes and asks growers to consider the interdependency of nutrients and how they affect one another. Margarit shares his field trials, experience with potato growers, and talks about trusting your own observations.
