Micronutrients play and important role in crop nutrition. Crop inputs such as Soygreen® and Redline™ are effective solutions to nutrient deficiencies.
Defending against yield inhibitors To achieve maximum yield, each seed that enters the furrow has to do its job by reaching maturity and producing seed. However, there are many dangers that lurk in the furrow to take advantage of young seedlings and ultimately reduce its ability to produce yield. Plant pathogens such as Pythium, Phytophthora, […]
From 2009-2011, agronomists with the Southern Minnesota Beet Sugar Cooperative conducted a three-year research project that looked at the potential benefits derived by adding starter fertilizer like Redline™ to a 10-34-0 fertilizer. So what did the experts discover? “Redline and Soygreen + 10-34-0 produced a revenue percent of mean that was greater than standard 10-34-0.” […]
