The objective of the POTENTIAL project is to explore the use of various remote sensing data aiming to increase water and nitrogen utilization in potato The results demonstrate high potential for data combinations and complementarity in determining potato growth, fertilization and irrigation needs The main findings are summarized in a manual describing
Insights and guidelines for variable rate irrigation and nitrogen fertilization in potatoBrussels, Belgium
Part 2 includes the fractionated fertilization of potatoes and maize. In part 3, several innovative practices and techniques are examined in terms of their advantage in a future agricultural exploitation in Flanders. For better nutrient control, new pathways are conceivable that can keep pace with more extreme and changing climate conditions.
We also provide training on optimized cultivation and fertilization methods via the 'Bio-optimal Telen network', an innovative advice service in the area of peat substitutes, biocontrol products and optimized fertilization recommendations.
Optimized fertilization and watering strategies for the novel substrates based on sensor monitoring are developed. New knowledge on plant growth in selected sustainable wood-fibre based substrate prototypes is gathered and communicated.
