Managing competition between canopy and root growth is a key challenge in maintaining root and tuber yield and quality. Levity’s David Marks explains new ways to meet this challenge and gain yield. 

Nitrogen form and availability has a big influence on where the plant puts it growth. Get it wrong and crops allocates too much resource to foliar growth and not enough to root and tuber development, get it right and yield and quality follows.

Expert crop scientist; David Marks will provide  answers to questions such as:

  • How can I maintain N levels without excess top growth?
  • How can I encourage flow of carbohydrates from canopy to tubers?
  • How do I reduce size variation in root crops?
  • How can I improve bulking?
  • How can I get tuber numbers and size up?
