New Potato Publication – Plant Nutrition Diagnostics


The International Plant Nutrition Institute (IPNI), J.R. Simplot Company, and Tennessee State University have collaborated on a new publication that provides readers with access to a unique collection of hundreds of high resolution photographs that document a wide range of nutrient deficiency symptoms in potato plants with remarkable clarity.

Good nutrition is essential for supporting potato plant health and providing the necessary defense against plant disease and stress. The identification of nutrient deficiencies in the field can be a difficult process and this collection provides farmers, crop advisers, and mineral nutrition researchers with a valuable diagnostic tool.

Written by D.S. Pitchay and R.L. Mikkelsen, the book is available as a download that can be used in the field on iOS devices such as iPad, iPhone, or Mac computer, and also as a pdf version that is viewable on all devices.
