Potato trial using H2Flo
- By applying H2Flo the yield increased by 7% and the starch content by 9% (vs grower ‘s practice)
- The farm income increased by €283 /ha after deducting the H2Flo costs, compared to normal farm practice
Objective of the trial: Demonstrate that applying H2FLO will result in a better horizontal and vertical water penetration and therefore an increased efficiency of irrigation, resulting in a higher yield and positive return of investment.
When: Sowing, 27/4/2015
Crop: Potato, Kuras (starch) variety
Soil type: Sandy soil – less than 5% clay. PH-7. Low O.M. levels
Application method: Boom spraying
Irrigation: Rain guns, 9 applications. Total amount of irrigation: 225mm.
Measurements: Yield and Starch content. Harvest measurements performed by the Swedish Society of Agriculture, Kristianstad trial.
H2Flo is an unique blend of surfactants especially designed to move water and fertilizers quickly and efficiently through different types of soil.
The advances made in surfactant technology mean that this product leads the way in water conservation and provides growers and farmers with the most advanced wetting agents available.
The product can be applied as an initial wetter and also during the normal irrigation cycle where it will also aid the movement of fertilizers throughout the soil therefore balancing the EC levels. H2Flo also prevents the hardening of water repellent deposits.
H2Flo contains a root hair activator that helps produce stronger roots and aids plant establishment.
