The Nutrient Navigator series focuses on efficient, environmentally sound management of nutrients. The goal is to provide practical knowledge that helps drive yields and profits higher.
- Field-by-Field Phosphorus
10/26/2013Since yield potential is determined in the first six weeks of growth, phosphorus (P) needs to be available early, especially with cold soil, continuous corn and P-fixation issues.
- Phosphorus Strategies
10/23/2013Your phosphorus management plan depends on where and how you farm, varying from field to field and soil type to soil type.
- The Magic of Phosphorus
09/28/2013Harvest is in full swing, but the impact of a difficult planting season is still apparent from the combine perch.
- Rich in Potassium
03/23/2013Potassium’s behavior in the soil sets it apart from other nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus. That means you must manage it differently.
- Potassium Insight
03/09/2013If there was an upshot to the drought of 2012 it was that many farmers had a prime opportunity to observe the effects of low potassium (K) levels.
- In the “Lime” Light
02/09/2013Correct acidity to create diverse microbial populations, which decompose residue and release soil nutrients.
- Slow Nitrogen Loss
01/26/2013Applying nitrogen—corn’s most important and trickiest nutrient—doesn’t do a lick of good if it escapes into the air or, even worse, into water sources before plants can use it.
