Average potato yields in developed economies are at least double the two largest producers of potato, China and India. Improving the yields of developing countries can be a major boost to food supply and farmer incomes. Crofft can help lower the yield gap by increasing the number of tubers per plan by focusing the plants attention on reproduction and not on vegetative growth.
Crofft® should not be applied to plants that are stressed, if in doubt please contact Biosynergy Fertilisers. Dry crops are rarely suitable for application due to likely stress being caused by moisture shortage due to lack of rain Additional precautions should be made against inadequate irrigation; high temperatures; salinity; moisture excess due to high water table; flooding or inappropriate irrigation; severe or successive frosts; poor fertility caused by imbalance of major or minor minerals or nutrients; diseases; insects; inappropriate herbicide use; mechanical damage.
