Fertility Facts

As much as 60 percent of crop yields are dependent on soil fertility. And with breakthroughs in science and technology, growers can achieve more of that 60 percent than ever before. 

Through a balanced crop nutrition plan, informed by experts in soil fertility, growers are positioned to achieve career-best yields. But it takes the right information. The videos and audio clips below provide a quick, high-level overview on specific soil fertility topics and trends that can impact as much as 60 percent of yield.

Fertilizing For High Yields

Up to 60 percent of your yield depends on proper crop nutrition. With today's genetics, special attention must be paid to fertilizing for high yields.

The Greater Need For Sulfur

It’s important to understand there are two kinds of sulfur – sulfate, and elemental. Learn how both kinds play an essential role in balanced crop nutrition.

Problem Areas In The Field

The early growing season is a good time for farmers to identify nutrient deficiencies in their fields, because it allows plenty of time to develop a comprehensive plan for the future.

The Importance of Potassium

In terms of the amount of nutrients a plant needs for growth, Potassium is second only to nitrogen. In 60 seconds get some Fertility Facts on K, and K uptake.

The Benefits of Boron

While the amount of Boron required for optimal fertility is much lower than the macronutrients N, P, and K it can be every bit as important to yield.

When To Soil Test A Field

Soil testing can help you understand how your field is doing, but it's important to know when to take your samples.

Fertilizing High-Yield Soybeans

Mosaic Senior Agronomist Ron Olson discusses nutrient requirements and fertilizer applications for high-yield soybeans with Ag PhD radio.

A Deeper Need for Phosphorus

Early in the growing season, roots take phosphorus from the top layer of the soil. But, a large amount of total P comes later on from the subsoil later, requiring season-long availability.

Potassium in Plant Health

In order to optimize plant health and yield potential, understanding the value and function of potassium is vital.

Wheat Fertility Timing

Mosaic New Product Development Specialist Curt Woolfolk discusses the importance of having a balanced approach to wheat fertility with AgPhD radio.

Fertilizing High-Yield Corn

Mosaic Sr. Manager of New Product Development Dr. Kyle Freeman talks with AgPhD radio about high population corn production and how increasing population goes hand-in-hand with a balanced crop nutrition plan.

4R Nutrient Stewardship

The 4Rs of nutrient stewardship (right fertilizer source at the right rate, at the right time, in the right place) provides a foundation for increased yield, increased profitability and improved sustainability.

Soybeans and Soil Fertility

Unlike corn, soybeans have need for Potassium (K) all season long. They also remove more K from the soil due to the ability to remobilize it more efficiently than corn.
