K-Mag® Blend Study

Evaluate corn yield response to MOP (0-0-60) and K-Mag® Premium (0-0-21.5-10.5Mg-21S).

Don’t Forget Zinc when Applying Phosphorus to Your Farm

Phosphorus (P) fertilizer is often added to cropping systems to increase yield, but growers should not overlook the importance of micronutrients like Zinc (Zn). Understanding some of the nutrient interactions that affect nutrient availability can help with management decisions like fertilizer source.

Aspire® Corn — Spring Broadcast

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

Aspire® Corn - Fall vs. Spring Broadcast

Evaluate the yield response of corn to Aspire®, MOP and MOP + Granular B blend in fall vs. spring applications.

MicroEssentials® SZ® Corn Fall vs. Spring Banded

Regardless of fall or spring application, a banded application of MicroEssentials® SZ® is a superior technology for improving nutrient use efficiency.

Balanced Crop Nutrition in a Cropping System

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.


Preparing for a Hefty Harvest...And Beyond

The growing season of 2014 has the potential to yield a record harvest in many areas of the country. With good weather conditions, high soil fertility and a combination of high-yielding varieties, crops look strong and healthy. But there’s more being removed from the fields than just a crop harvest — record yields mean record nutrient removal from the soil.


Direct and Residual Fertilization in Soybeans

A common practice in the U.S. Midwest is to combine the quantities of phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) recommended for both corn and soybean crops into a single application. This biennial application of fertilizer is usually applied after soybean harvest. In a corn/soybean rotation, this results in a “direct” application to corn and a “residual” application to soybeans. Less common, although also studied by scientists, has been a biennial application applied after corn, resulting in a direct application to soybeans and a residual application to corn.


Mastering Early-Season Fertility

Whether you are growing wheat, canola or corn, you can set the stage for a healthy growing season and maximum yield with early-season treatments and starter fertilizer.

MicroEssentials® SZ® Corn Zinc Rate Study

Evaluate the yield response of MicroEssentials® SZ®

MicroEssentials® SZ® Phosphorus Uptake in Corn

Evaluate the yield response and phosphorus uptake of MicroEssentials® SZ®


Reducing the Continuous-Corn Yield Penalty

A recent study from DuPont Pioneer outlined the continuous-corn yield penalty, and the causes for that penalty. Over a six-year period, the study found that continuous corn yields, on average, 25 bushels per acre fewer than corn that follows soybeans.
