Improved mycorrization for giant tubers

Evaluation of performance of ferti-activator Sanbio EPSOMIT and PLANTA on the productivity of potato variety ´Spunta´ compared to standard NK fertilizer in organic farming

Gutenborn, Germany (July 25, 2020) – A well-known research institute executed the trial to evaluate the performance of ferti-activators Sanbio EPSOMIT and PLANTA on the yield of organic late season potato crop variety ´Spunta´ compared to NK standard fertilizer.

 

Plot No. 1 (treated) 2No. 2 (control)
Soil preparation 20t/ha compost
1 kg/ha Sanbio EPSOMIT
1.5 kg/ha Sanbio PLANTA
20t/ha compost
200 kg/ha NK fertilizer/soil activator
Plantation density 80x35cm 80x35cm
Use of pesticides No No
Irrigation Drip irrigation Drip irrigation

Mycorrhization rate of the root system

Following results have been achieved of Sanbio compared to Control at larger caliber tubers 35-55mm:

  • +11.8% higher yield
  • +30% higher tuber mass
  • +13.4% higher firmness of tubers
  • +131% higher mycorrhization rate of tubers.
