PCN mapping

Potato cyst nematode mapping

PCN mapping is an essential aspect of growing a potato crop. By choosing to map PCN in 1ha grids, risk is minimised at a more accurate level. Agrovista ensures all standard samples are tested in the lab in 200gms, opposed to many others which are tested at 100gms. The means that sampling is accurately conducted in 1ha grids, but also that the lab work is more representable by using the 200gm method.

Service uses:

  • Cyst and egg count
  • Speciation
  • 49 cores/ha
  • Nutrient analysis can also be added
  • 100 or 200g soil analysed.
