KTIF TUBERZONE – A Precision Approach to Predicting Potato Tuber Growth
Posted in Crop Health, Crops and Soils
This one-year KTIF (Knowledge Transfer Innovation Fund) project ran from May 2019 to June 2020, spanning the 2019 potato production season and subsequent marketing of the crop. The project aimed to promote the uptake of a new technology and to provide a high level of training for growers.
The project had two principle aims a) to encourage the Gemson growers to use the Tuberzone software to help predict burn down dates and work out how useful this was b) to assess the level of support farmers need when adopting new technologies.
