SOIL ANALYSIS IN POTATO CROP PRODUCTION

POPESCU C.V.

Abstract


By considering its high yielding potential and its nutritional value, potato (Solanum tuberosum L.), is an important crop in the agricultural production. The potato potential yield cannot be reached in the production systems as the biotic and abiotic factors interfere with the potato crop by negatively affecting the plant growth and the tuber development. The study aimed to emphasize the importance of the soil analysis for the potato crop. Soil samples were collected in 2020 from farm fields located in Brașov and Covasna departments, where farmers are traditionally involved in the potato production. Considering the registered results, the soil’s content in available nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium, it is essential to perform soil analysis to successfully implement integrated soil – plant nutrient management action plans aiming better quantitative and qualitative tuber yields.
