For SharePoint 2013 it would be:

$mp = GetEnterpriseSearchMetadataManagedProperty -Identity "YOUR MANAGED PROPERTY NAME" -SearchApplication "YOUR SEARCH APP NAME"
Set-SPEnterpriseSearchMetadataManagedProperty -Identity $mp -RespectPriority $true

You can reference TechNet here: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff608001.aspx

For SharePoint 2010 and a FAST for SharePoint SSA it is similar:

Set-FASTSearchMetadataManagedProperty -Name $mp -MergeCrawledProperties $false
