The living part of soil is made up of various species of microorganisms that include bacteria, actinomycetes (a group of bacteria that are anaerobic), fungi, protozoa, and algae, along with insects and animals (e.g., earthworms) categorized as macroorganisms.
Organic matter (O.M.) plays a significant role in crop production and soil health. Building and maintaining a healthy soil that has more O.M. can aid in providing a stronger foundation for higher crop yields and resiliency to environmental stresses.
Carbon (C), especially carbon dioxide (CO2), is a topic that is constantly being discussed for its role in the environment.
Evaluate corn yield response to Aspire® (0-0-58-0.5B) and a combination of Aspire + K-Mag® Premium (0-0-21.5-10.5Mg-21S).
Growers may consider reducing fertilizer rates for various reasons such as lower crop prices, higher input costs, lower than expected yields, or uncertainty of profitable yield responses.
Evaluate the corn yield response to MOP (0-0-60) and K-Mag® Premium (0-0-21.5-10.5Mg-21S).
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 change slowly for several years. In fact, less than 1% of plant biomass carbon returned to soil eventually becomes stable humus organic carbon.
Evaluate soybean yield response to MAP, MAP + AS and MicroEssentials® S10®.
Evaluate soybean yield response to MAP (11-52-0) + MOP (0-0-60) and a combination of MicroEssentials® S10® (12-40-0-10S) + Aspire® (0-0-58-0.5B)
