Description

Season Long Nutrition: Advances in Fertilizer Technology and Recommendations

Presenter Kyle Lilly, Senior Product Manager, Compass Minerals Plant Nutrition

Description

While adequate pre-plant application of N, P, and K fertilizer have many practical benefits, farmers often ask why they do not often get higher yields with higher fertilizer application rates. The more pounds on the ground fertilizer approach has limitations with best 4R fertilizer practices missing from the equation. This presentation will show new research on fertilizer application rate, timing, source, and placement with a focus on micronutrients, crop stresses, and physiology across the growing season. This presentation will demonstrate how reducing plant stress can reduce the susceptibility of crops to insects and diseases thus reducing needs for pesticide application. In particular new research on nickel, cobalt, and molybdenum shows that these three nutrients can have a major effect on nitrogen metabolism during vegetative growth.
