Potato fertilization recommendations

The correct choice of mineral fertilizer will ensure a high yield, stability and quality of tubers, reduce sensitivity to adverse conditions and extend the storage period

For the successful production of potatoes, the balance of mineral substances is very important, that is, high yields cannot be achieved on plots where certain mineral elements are missing.

Specific amounts of fertilizers are determined based on expected yields, plant needs, soil analysis, cultivation technology and production conditions.

In potatoes, nitrogen (N) significantly contributes to the growth of tubers, while phosphorus (P) affects the formation of the total number of tubers. During tuber growth, potassium (K) is absorbed faster and more than other elements. It affects the synthesis of carbohydrates in the leaves and their migration to the tubers. An adequate supply of potassium during the development period is crucial for the yield and quality of the product. Magnesium (Mg) increases photosynthetic activity and transport of carbohydrates, and the presence of calcium (Ca) promotes healthy skin development and contributes to greater tolerance to diseases and adverse environmental conditions.

The production range of Elixir Zorka contains a range of different fertilizer formulations which, with their respective nutritional elements and quality, fully meet the requirements of potato production.

Which mineral fertilizer do we recommend for the potato crop?

NPK 6:12:24

The product NPK 6:12:24 + 6% S in terms of its ratio of nutrients represents a well-balanced formulation for achieving high and stable yields of all cultivated plants that have an increased need for potassium (K)


AmoSulfan belongs to the category of nitrogen fertilizers. It is extremely suitable for feeding all types of plants. The use of AmoSulfan significantly improves the availability and uptake of phosphorus on alkaline and neutral soils

NutriVeg NPK 10:10:20

NutriVeg NPK 10:10:20 +2% MgO +9% S +0.2% B +0.1% Zn is a complex, solid mineral fertilizer, the application of which provides complete nutrition to cultivated plants with all necessary macro and microelements during the production process cycle

NPK 12:11:18

The product NPK 12:11:18 + 2% MgO + 15% S + 0.01% B + 0.02% Zn + TE is a complex, solid mineral fertilizer of superior quality, which is primarily used for the production of highly profitable fruit and vegetable crops

NPK 12:12:17

The product NPK 12:12:17+ 2% Mg + 14% S + 0.02% B + 0.01% Zn provides balanced nutrition for a large number of plant species. Carefully selected secondary macro and microelements ensure high yields and exceptional product quality

NutriBOOST NP 10:45

NutriBOOST NP 10:45 + 5% S + 1% Zn is a new generation microgranulated fertilizer with a special additive that protects phosphorus (P) from blocking in the soil, preventing its reaction with other elements such as Ca, Al and Fe

Spring fertilization of potatoes implies the use of nitrogen fertilizers, because nitrogen is the carrier of potato yield

Proizvodi Elixir Group

Amosulfan 20% N + 24% S

AmoSulfan contains nitrogen in ammoniacal form.

This form of nitrogen binds more easily and is more difficult to wash out from the soil profile, which makes it available to plants for a longer period of time. Sulfur, as the main macroelement, directly affects the increase in the quality of cereal grains, because it participates in protein synthesis.
