Carbon is the currency of nature: the backbone of soil organic matter and the energy source for soil microorganisms. Therefore, much interest in soil health focuses on increasing carbon storage in soil. When you reduce tillage or increase crop rotation diversity, you expect soil organic matter to increase. However, soil organic matter often changes slowly for several years. In fact, less than 1% of plant biomass carbon returned to soil eventually becomes stable humus organic carbon.

Evaluate onion marketable yield response to MAP (11-52-0), MAP + MOP (0-0-60) and MAP + MOP + K-Mag® Premium (0-0-21.5-10.5Mg-21S).
Evaluate soybean yield response to Aspire®, MOP and a MOP + Granular B blend in fall vs. spring applications.
Soil health is the cornerstone of balanced crop nutrition. Up to 60% of yield is dependent on soil fertility. Setting the foundation for healthy soils provides greater crop productivity and sustains the land for generations to come.
Six outstanding members of the agriculture community were recognized in Mosaic's annual Harvest Heroes contest.
It takes a community to make harvest happen. Recognize those that go above and beyond to make the season a little easier. No matter the task, from something small like making coffee in the morning, helping get a stuck tractor out of the mud, or as big as coordinating grain donations for a farmer in need, Harvest Heroes are everyday helpers – in extraordinary or simple ways. Nominate your Harvest Hero today and they’ll be entered for a chance to win a Harvest Hero Prize Pack, including a YETI cooler, gear from the SharkFarmer and more.
