Sweet potatoes have been earmarked for a new ENTEC® fertiliser trial in Bundaberg this season. Rob Dwyer, Incitec Pivot Fertilisers’ Agronomist – Tropical Systems, is excited about the potential for ENTEC to reduce nitrogen losses, lift sweet potato yields and improve quality.

Yield increases following subsoil manuring are more likely to be driven by the nutrients supplied than the deep ripping process or the manure, according to a major subsoil manuring experiment in south-eastern Australia.

Agronomists were asked to consider the impact of sulphur leaching in an informative session led by Dr Chris Guppy during Incitec Pivot Fertilisers’ recent Agronomy Community forums.
