December update – irrigation trial update

Share this:

An irrigation trial has been set up within a commercial field in Dorie, Canterbury to understand more about the soil moisture requirements of potatoes.

Seven treatments have been set up ranging from replacing 100% soil moisture, replacing 0% soil moisture and also restricting water at key times i.e. tuber set. The treatments are being watered every week and also monitored weekly for pests and diseases.
