Soil, Water and Topography Maps as a Management Tool to Improve Profitability and Sustainability within the Potato Industry

The proposed research will explore opportunities in measuring spatial variability in soil, water and topography within potato fields. Addressing this variability by doing site specific application of inputs such as fertilizer, crop protectant and seed can help to increase environmental sustainability and economic viability in potato production. This research will help develop new applications for SWAT mapping in potatoes all over the world.
