When asked how important nutrient availability is to his operation, without hesitation, Jack White from central Minnesota said it was right up there at number one.
Nutrient availability is rapidly becoming a hot topic within agriculture, as more growers focus on planting early, while still wanting to maximize plant health to achieve the best possible yields.
Learn how to use starter fertilizer for crops in specific situations, which can lead to better plant health, emergence, and yield increase.
Battling iron deficiency chlorosis doesn’t have to sacrifice yields. Making more iron available to soybeans opens up options for higher-yielding beans.
The best time to ensure rapid and healthy growth is at planting. Focusing on early fertility, and using in-furrow application to place the nutrients where the young seedling can access them sets the trajectory for growth and provides a strong start that carries throughout the entire season.
Understanding chelates in agriculture is key to optimal crop production and maximizing return on investment. We’ve covered the science behind chelating agents, but in this excerpt from the LIFT Summit, Steve Roehl from West Central Distribution discusses why an ortho-ortho EDDHA chelate is the best option for nutrient uptake.
Steve Roehl from West Central Distribution discussed chelating agents for plant nutrition, particularly Levesol™, at our LIFT Summit in October 2015. He explains that a good chelating agent will enhance the availability and uptake of nutrients, and discusses exactly how it does this.
With so many different soil geographies, it can be difficult to keep track of the various issues that might arise in your plants in a given year. In this post, we’ve listed out some common nutrient deficiencies, how to identify them and what’s at stake for your crops.
Using the soil extraction test as described by Brian Kuehl, you can find out which nutrients that are already present in your soil are now available for uptake to your plants after using an in-furrow application of the chelating-agent Levesol.
Sustainability is undeniably very important in agriculture, because people want to be sure their food and water supplies are being produced responsibly.
