Damu for Potato bulking is designed to increase the size, uniformity weight and dry matter content of potatoes ahead of harvest. Damu works by encouraging movement of photosynthates in the leaves down into tubers, this helps the plant to use its energy to bulk the crop rather than force late season seaf growth. This approach both safeguards quality, and improves size and quality of tubers ahead of harvest.

Why is bulking important?

Direction of photosynthate flow is the strongest influence on grading late season. If growing conditions favour shoot growth, more undersized tubers occur, and yield reduces. Shoots can pull nutrients from storage tissue (tubers), reducing quality and storage life. Damu focuses the plant on pushing resource into tubers to lift both size and quality.

Application Rate: 5 l/ha two weeks before harvest to bulk tubers. 2 l/ha throughout season whenever crop is experiencing fast foliar growth spurts.
