Field Insights Issue 34: Nu-Trax P+ Increases Potato Yield Across All Size Categories in Florida

A replicated field trial was conducted in Florida to evaluate the performance of Nu-Trax P+ as part of an early season fertilizer program for potato production. Under the conditions of this study, the addition of Nu Trax P+ significantly increased the yield of potatoes across all size categories, despite being applied with considerably less macronutrient fertilizer.

Field Insights Issue 26: Wolf Trax DDP Nutrients Improve Potato Yields and Grower Returns in Washington

In 2016, a replicated field study was conducted in the Columbia Basin to evaluate the performance of Wolf Trax DDP® Nutrients and Nu-Trax P+™ in potatoes. Separate applications of Nu-Trax P+ or Wolf Trax DDP Nutrients provided considerable yield benefits, and best results were obtained when Nu-Trax P+ and Wolf Trax DDP Nutrients were applied in a combined approach.

Field Insights Issue 10: Wolf Trax DDP Nutrients Improve Potato Quality, Yield and Return

In 2014, a study was conducted in Washington to evaluate the performance of Wolf Trax Zinc DDP and Boron DDP in potato production. The results of this study showed that micronutrients, particularly Wolf Trax DDPs, improved yield and quality of potatoes. Wolf Trax DDPs increased the amount of US #1s by 11% and 26% over the Grower Standard with and without granular micronutrients, respectively. As a result, Wolf Trax DDP’s increased gross revenue per acre by $159 and $224 as compared to the Grower Standard with and without granular micronutrients, respectively.

Field Insights Issue 3: Wolf Trax DDP Nutrients Improve Potato Size in Nicaragua

A study was conducted in Matagalpa, Nicaragua in 2015 to evaluate the performance of Wolf Trax DDP Nutrients on potatoes. This study showed that micronutrients significantly improved potato yields in the extra large size category over an NPK blend with no micronutrients and that DDPs outperformed traditional granular micronutrients. Wolf Trax Iron DDP and Zinc DDP coated onto the NPK blend dramatically improved yields by 155% and 309%, respectively, over a traditional NPK blend, and 22% and 43% respectively, over granular micronutrients, thus optimizing potato returns.

Field Insights Issue 1: Nu-Trax P+ Improves Potato Yield and Quality

A study was conducted in the Columbia Basin, Washington in 2014 to evaluate the performance of Nu-Trax P+ on Russet Burbank potatoes. This study showed that Nu-Trax P+ coated on a NPK dry blend preplant increased usable potato yield by 10% over the uncoated treatment. The best results came when Nu-Trax P+ was coated on the NPK blend and the use of a liquid phosphorus (P) starter applied in the planter band. This treatment increased total usable yield by 13%.
