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.


Nutrient Navigator

  • Step-by-Step Sulfur
    Application methods, placement and timing depend on soil conditions in each field
  • The Fourth Building Block
    Nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium get all of the publicity, but if there was an Academy Award for crop nutrients, sulfur would win best supporting actor.
  • Field-by-Field Phosphorus
    Since 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
    Your 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
    Harvest is in full swing, but the impact of a difficult planting season is still apparent from the combine perch.
  • Rich in Potassium
    Potassium’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
    If 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.
