Lachlan Agriculture’s head agronomist Angus Ker reports from their trial site in Kinangop.
“This really proves that the Lachlan Viazi Power programme works especially in a time of drought. We are counting 14 to 16 tubers per plant in the Viazi Power programme versus 7 tubers per plant under standard programme.
The biggest merit seen is the lack of stress in the treated plants, having had no rain for over 5 weeks and no irrigation applied”.
The Viazi Power programme begins with a tuber seed treatment using a mix of trichoderma, seaweed extract with trace elements, a biostimulant and humic granules.
The crop is then sprayed pre flower with NHCa Delta at 2 L/Ha (3 applications) tank mixed with seaweed extract and a biostimulant.
For the remainder of the season, during the bulking stage of the crop, NHK Delta will be applied on a weekly basis.
