MicroEssentials® SZ® Spring Wheat Study


Evaluate the yield response of spring wheat to MAP (11-52-0) + MOP (0-0-60) and MicroEssentials® SZ® (12-40-0-10S-1Zn) + MOP.


  • Spring wheat is typically grown in the Northern Great Plains and Western Prairie Provinces of Canada.

  • MAP is a common phosphorus (P) fertilizer applied to spring wheat.

  • MicroEssentials® SZ® is a premium P fertilizer that provides uniform nutrient distribution of nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), sulfur (S) and zinc (Zn), which includes a season-long supply of sulfur.

  • In addition to N, P, S and Zn, spring wheat may benefit from applications of potassium (K).
