Nutrient Navigator

  • The Basics of Zinc
    Know where to look for deficiencies to set the stage for preventive management
  • Step-by-Step Sulfur
    Application methods, placement and timing depend on soil conditions in each field
  • The Fourth Building Block

  • 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.
