Episode 16: Why Overwatering Invites Disease and Removes Critical Nutrients
Dr. Colin Campbell discusses his collaborative research efforts controlling water on potato farms in southern Idaho. In potatoes, overwatering impacts disease and reduces critical nutrients in the root zone. He and other researchers discovered that combining measurements helped them better understand the impacts of management and the interplay between variables like evapotranspiration and soil water.
