Nebraska
Potato Grower

Speed to Maturity

This Nebraska farmer, grows and ships fresh, processed, and seed potatoes year-round. They are fourth generation potato farmers, and are AIB, GAP, and SGS approved, and currently farms 2,500 acres throughout Nebraska and Kansas.

Application

120 acres irrigated plot in Nebraska, USA. The northern half of the plot (60 acres) was treated with Aqueus’ Growthful chemistry, the southern half (60 acres) was treated conventionally as a control group. The plot utilizes a center pivot irrigation system. Applied at 7-10 day intervals.

Results

  • Crops treated with Growthful showed significant improvements in yield, tuber size, and overall plant health.
  • Speed to maturity of the tubers was a significant result, the treated crops were ready for harvest 6-8 weeks prior to the untreated crops.
  • Growthful’s ability to provide speed to maturity provides farmers with unique flexibility in their planting and harvesting cycles. Pre-planting wet weather cycles are of less concern as farmers can delay planting and still harvest on time when using Growthful.
  • Growthful’s speed to maturity provides farmers the opportunity to harvest earlier and garner a higher price for the early crop potatoes, as well as avoid the potential destructive impact of early hard freeze events before harvest.
  • Growthful produced higher value, larger tubers, and in greater quantities. Overall total yield increase averaged 5-6% on this trial.
