Learn how to use starter fertilizer for crops in specific situations, which can lead to better plant health, emergence, and yield increase.
Last year, excessive rainfall that swept through the Midwest, leaving puddles in cornfields and customers concerned about spring-applied nitrogen loss. Using a nitrogen stabilizer, such as Instinct® II or N-Serve®, will help prevent nitrate leaching during rainy seasons and keep nitrogen in the root zone, where corn needs it most.
A few months ago at our LIFT Summit, we got a chance to sit down with Jason Moulin from Dow AgroSciences and talk about managing nitrogen. He explains how managing nitrogen in crop production helps growers protect their investments.
Phosphorus and nitrogen are a huge industry focus, but there is much more to nutrient availability than targeting only one or two nutrients.
A recap of the LIFT Agriculture Summit told through 31 tweets by people and organizations who attended the event.
Nutrient availability is essential for crops throughout the growing period, particularly in the early growth stages. Crucial micronutrients such as phosphorous and nitrogen can get tied up in the soil and rendered unavailable for uptake by the plant. It’s important to develop a fertility plan that optimizes both the nutrients in your fertilizer, as well as the nutrients in the soil.
