    Spud Smart Webinar

    -

    Expert views on how this practice can improve yield and quality and reduce defects.

    Growers and agronomists share their experiences and views on best management practices for using narrower row widths in potato production and the benefits for producers.

    During this webinar you will:

    • Hear how data from McCain Foods’ Manitoba growers showed significant yield increases with decreased row spacings from 2009 and 2015

    • Learn about a U.S. Pacific Northwest study that illustrates similar yield benefits with tighter row widths

    • Discover how, in the right circumstances, reducing row widths can also lead to improved quality as well as fewer sugar ends and other defects

    • Receive key agronomic advice on equipment modifications and fertilizer, chemical and irrigation management changes associated with narrower row spacings
