Follow The 3Ds of Micronutrient Management to Maximize Crop Fertility

Working closely with your advisers on basic fertility needs is a tried-and-true strategy that Dr. Ross Bender, Director of New Product Development for The Mosaic Company, stresses. He suggests starting a crop plan by focusing on the fundamentals: getting a handle on pH, ensuring macronutrients are under control and maximizing the value of micronutrients.

Boron – A Critical Nutrient Required for Root Growth and Potassium Uptake

A balanced supply of essential macro- and micronutrients is one of the most important factors to achieve higher crop yields. Boron (B) is one of eight micronutrients needed for proper plant growth. Lack of B in plant tissue can reduce cell wall function and stability, cell elongation, root growth, nutrient uptake and crop yields. This article describes the role of B in root growth and nutrient uptake, with a special emphasis on potassium (K).

Evaluate the yield response of corn to potassium (K) using MOP and Aspire® in a spring broadcast application.

Boron – How to Extend Nutrient Availability

Although boron (B) is considered the most deficient micronutrient in the world after zinc, dynamics of B use in plants and soils have continued to perplex farmers, agronomists and researchers for decades.

Quantify the effect of a comprehensive fertility program including MicroEssentials® SZ® (12-40-0-10S-1Zn) + Aspire® (0-0-58-0.5B) compared to a conventional fertility program of MAP (11-52-0) + MOP (0-0-60) or MAP Only in a four-year cropping system.

Looking Beyond the Big Three in Soybeans

The objective of a recently published study conducted by University of Illinois plant physiologist Dr. Fred Below and recent doctoral graduates Dr. Ross Bender and Dr. Jason Haegele was to identify which secondary macronutrients and micronutrients demand attention in a new era of soybean production.
