Growing with AGGRAND

 

Potatoes

Potatoes respond to AGGRAND fertilizers when they are applied in banded applications at planting and as foliar applications after emergence.

 

Banded Applications

 

Per-acre mix ratio:

 

2 gallons AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer and 20 gallons of water. Apply near the seed at planting. The addition of 1 gallon AGGRAND Natural Liquid Bonemeal may be beneficial; especially when soil phosphorus levels are below 40 ppm.

 

Foliar Applications

 

Per-acre mix ratio:

 

1 gallon AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer and 25 gallons of water. Apply as a fine mist with enough solution to thoroughly cover the leaves. Increase spray volume as canopy develops to ensure thorough coverage. Perform foliar applications at 10, 40 and 60 days after emergence.

 

Rates vary according to soil fertility and other inputs used. Lower dilution rates are more effective than higher dilution rates. Two or three lighter applications may be more effective than one heavy application. If other constraints allow only one trip over the field, do not exceed a 4 percent dilution rate (4 gallons AGGRAND fertilizers to 96 gallons water).

 

To reduce susceptibility to attack of insects and disease-causing organisms, apply a per-acre mixture of 1 gallon AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer and 25 gallons of water when signs of infestation become apparent. Substitute 2 quarts AGGRAND Natural Kelp and Sulfate of Potash for AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer late in the season when additional nitrogen is not necessary.

 

Soil Applications

 

Per-acre mix ratio:

 

3 gallons AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer and 30 gallons of water. Apply in spring or fall. Apply in spring and fall if soil is hard and low in organic matter.
