Levity CropScience reveals ground-breaking research on increasing potato yields

Leading UK agronomy specialists, Levity CropScience, based at Myerscough College in Bilsborrow, has today unveiled, at the British Potato exhibition, BP2017 in Harrogate, their industry changing research.

Based on independent field trials, from 2015 to 2017, Levity has demonstrated that their product, Potato Lono, increases potato yields by up to $1000 per hectare. Trials were held in England, Ireland, Netherlands, and France.

Potato Lono improves photosynthesis, and helps crops increase carbon efficiency during times of stress, improving tuber initiation and bulking. This can result in increased tuber numbers, when applied during tuber initiation, with trials showing increases of over 60,000 extra tubers per hectare across various potato varieties.

“We’re excited to have revealed this groundbreaking data” said David Marks, Joint MD, Levity CropScience. “Our hard work has paid off and now growers around the world will be able to benefit from this research and our innovative application of this knowledge into unrivalled, pioneering fertiliser products.”

Anne Weston, Joint MD, Levity CropScience added: “Over the next few weeks, we will be attending several exhibitions to meet farmers and their advisers to highlight and discuss our results, including the fantastic benefits Levity CropScience’s products offer the farming and horticultural industries throughout the world.

“It is another example of how our innovative Lancashire company is driving research into increasing crop yields throughout the world, which will ultimately benefit both the environment and the local population.”
