Maintaining Healthy Roots

Not all risks to yield are easy to spot — some exist below the surface.

Root health is essential to overall crop health. Without it, plants are more susceptible to stress factors, such as cold spells, drought and disease. Nematodes are a constant challenge for Pacific Northwest growers, drastically reducing crop vigor and yield.

But solutions exist that can help to reduce crop damage by treating infestations now and in the future. To safeguard potato root health, Pacific Northwest growers should consider cultural practices, such as crop rotation, paired with chemical controls. Proper planning and vigilant monitoring can protect potatoes from nematodes, ensuring healthy crops and strong productivity.
