A good fertilization program for potatoes must satisfy the nutritional needs of the crop throughout the growing season.
Latin America, which is where the potato originated, nowadays accounts for just 5% of total global production. A good fertilization program for potatoes must satisfy the nutritional needs of the crop throughout the growing season, including during periods of rapid growth. Balanced fertilization helps to ensure better quality production: an under-supply of nitrogen will reduce the weight of the tubers, whereas an excess supply of nitrogen will deform them. In addition, a lack of phosphorus (P) limits tuber reproduction and consequently reduces the number of tubers. Finally, potassium (K) is very important for potatoes. It is required in greater quantities than all the other elements. Fertilization programs will differ depending on the use of the crop.
