Petiole Sampling Potatoes

Jun 20, 2020

As the potato crop grows to full canopy, growers are constantly monitoring nutrient levels in the plants.  At Pest Pros we take potato “petiole” samples  in our customers fields on a weekly basis to provide up to the minute nutrient values. If adjustments need to made the growers can react quickly. Randy Van Haren demonstrates the how-tos of petiole sampling to our interns as we will start sampling next week on nearly every field we look at.  To watch a video of the process, click here.
