How to increase potato yield

Side dressing of Multi-KMg prill increased yield by 9%




Potatoes / Estima
Country / locationEngland / Suffolk / Sutton Hoo Farms
ObjectivesIncrease yield
Haifa product testedMulti KMg 12-0-42+2MgO (prills)
Application methodSide dressing
Tested treatment250 kg/ha of Multi KMg 12-0-42+2MgO (prills)
Control treatment results47.23 MT /ha
Best treatment results51.51 MT /ha
Characteristics of best treatmentYield increase: 4.28 MT/ha (9.06% over control)
Grower’s revenue from yield: 192 US$/MT 
Cost of treatment (application + material US$/ha) 171
Net benefit of best treatment(4.28 x 192) – 171 = 651 US$/ha
Benefit/Cost ratio(4.28 x 192) / 171 = 4.8

A consistent yield increase throughout this series of experiments, with Multi-KMg
