Cultivating Irish Potatoes with Fersan’s ‘Potato-Lizer’

Local production of Irish potatoes is on the rise. And with efforts like the National Irish Potato Program 2017- in collaboration with the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture & Fisheries (MICAF), Newport Fersan Jamaica Limited and H&L Agro – currently underway, we can only look forward to even greater developments in the industry. As with all crops, the successful cultivation of Irish potatoes means following a specific set of rules and practices; site selection and soil preparation is crucial, so too is having adequate moisture and fertilizer.

The requirements for the successful cultivation of Irish potato are no different from other crops. Adequate nutrition is essential but represents only one of the many components.

Fertilizers help to supplement the natural soil nutrient supply in order to satisfy the demand of the crop. The fertilizer is used to compensate for the nutrients removed by previous crops, natural shortfall based on soil type, leaching etc. Fertilizers and fertilizer products are also used to improve the fertility of otherwise unfavourable soils. Fersan’s Potato-Lizer does all this and more!
