Potatoes

Moderate to high sensitivity to the deficiency of: Mg, Mn
Low to moderately sensitivity to the deficiency of: B, Zn
(the sensitivity to the deficiencies of these nutrients can vary in function of the variety)

Fructol NF
On potatoes BMS Micro-Nutrients obtained the best results with Fructol NF. This product contains various elements which are very important for the nutrition of this crop. Fructol NF contains 10 nutrients, and the concentrations of K, Mg and B are relatively high.
When there are no specific deficiencies, Fructol NF can be used on its one. But in case of deficiencies and/or when the concentrations of the different elements in the soil are out of balance, the Fructol NF program has to be completed with an other specific product out of our range.

Chelal B
Boron is very important for the quality of the tubers. The brown discoloration, the hollow tubers and a bad homogeneity of the yield, are all problems related with Boron deficiency. This product has to be applied early in the growth cycle.

Chelal Mg and Chelal Mn
Potatoes are very sensitive to the deficiency of these elements (magnesium and manganese). If deficiencies appear the best way to treat them is with foliar applications.

Kappa V/G/M
These products can be used to stimulate growth (Kappa V or Kappa M that brings on also some extra manganese) in the beginning of the cycle of the plant or to apply some extra potash when the need for this element starts to grow strongly, which is from tuber formation on (Kappa G). Foliar applications of K will allow supplementing the absorption by the roots, and will avoid interruptions in the growth of the tubers.
