POTENTIAL-Variable rate irrigation and nitrogen fertilization in Potato; engage the spatial variation

With a total acreage of more than 5 200 km² in all four countries, potato is an important agricultural crop in Belgium, Denmark, The Netherlands and Germany. In the participating countries percolation water contains NO3--concentrations higher than 25 mg/l so they have a common interest in reducing N-leaching and increasing the water use efficiency by irrigation in potato fields. It is expected that irrigation in potato will be crucial in the future to maintain stable yields as scenarios predict an increased occurrence of climatic extremes. More
