IPNI Crop Nutrient Deficiency Photo Contest—2015
The International Plant Nutrition Institute (IPNI) is continuing its sponsorship of its plant nutrient deficiency photo contest during 2015 to encourage field observation and increase understanding of crop nutrient deficiencies. However, this year our contest features some important changes:
1. In addition to the four nutrient categories (N, P, K and Other Nutrients - secondary and micronutrients), we have added a new "Feature Crop" category—in 2015 the focus is Root and Tuber Crops (e,g, Potato, Sweet Potato, Cassava, Carrot, Beets, etc)
Like previous years, we are ready to receive images for all crops from avocado to zucchini, but if you have a great photo of a nutrient deficiency in Root and Tuber Crops, now is the time to share it.
2. Our new list of prizes is as follows:
3. Specific supporting information is required for all entries, including:
“We hope this competition will appeal to practitioners working in actual production fields,” said IPNI President Dr. Terry Roberts. “Researchers working under controlled plot conditions are also welcome to submit entries. We encourage crop advisers, field scouts, and others to photograph and document deficiencies in crops.”
Photos and supporting information can be submitted until December 9, 2015 @ 5pm EST.
Winners will be announced in January of 2016. Winners will be notified and results will be posted at www.ipni.net.
