A site specific herbicide dosing system for potato haulm killing using Reglone (diquatdibromide 200g.l-1 Syngenta Crop protection BV) was tested in 2005 on two commercial ware potato fields in Lelystad, NL. The system consisted of a Yara N-sensor on the roof of the tractor, a 24 m Hardi Twin Force sprayer with a Raven pesticide injection system, and a controler unit (PDA, DSS and GPS) that translated reflection measurements into a minimum effective dose. The DSS in the control unit was based on studies in previous years. It is called MLHD potato haulm killing.
