UK: Nitrification inhibitor boosts potato yields

Potato yields can be boosted by using nitrogen inhibitors sprayed on to the soil or applied in-furrow at planting, according to independent on-farm trials in Scotland. The nitrification and urease inhibitor Didin was used in the trials and works by slowing down the conversion of ammonium into nitrate, reducing losses by leaching and volatilisation.
