Using SWAT MAPS to Grow the Best Potato Crop

About The Webinar

SWAT MAPS chart soil, water and topography in fields to help growers manage their potato crops better. Fields are not all the same, with low and high spots, wet and dry ones, these patches all require different management strategies. SWAT MAPS allow growers to accurately identify areas of the field which shed water and sites which collect it. It also helps spot areas which may have been impacted by erosion or depletion of topsoil.
