Under greenhouse conditions, iron and manganese deficiencies in potato and sorghum test plants have been identified when grown in soils from Copic Bay. However, correction of these micronutrient deficiencies in the potato and enhancement of tuber yields have not been realized under field conditions. Cultural practices, frost damage, and severity of Rhizoctonia infection have minimized plant response to fertilizer treatments.
