Pumpkin nutrition

Asked June 29, 2018, 9:37 AM EDT

Good Morning, I worh for a parge pumpkin grower in the UK. We know that excess nitrogen can damage the storage potential of the crop, but, has anyone looked at the benefits of organic matter in the soil on storability & quality, or even using humic acid or other soil enhancers to improve pumkin storage potential, I wonder? I would welcome your views on best timing of fertilier application & what rates to use, based on work in your area, please? I can be reached at paul@pwhort.com, or 00447470452007. Thank you for reading my question.
