Six outstanding members of the agriculture community were recognized in Mosaic's annual Harvest Heroes contest.
Building soybean fertility is a process that starts from the ground up. With the potential for higher soybean yields with each passing year, the need for a strong, healthy crop continues to rise. Soybeans have more complex nutrient needs than previously thought and require nutrients throughout the growing season.
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.
Five things to consider to get your growing season off to the best start possible.
Evaluate the yield response of spring wheat to MAP (11-52-0) and MicroEssentials® S15® (13-33-0-15S).
Regardless of fall or spring application, a banded application of MicroEssentials® SZ® is a superior technology for improving nutrient use efficiency.
Evaluate the yield response of winter wheat to applications of MAP (11-52-0) and MicroEssentials® SZ® (12-40-0-10S-1Zn) when placed in-furrow with the seed (Air-drill placement).
Evaluate the yield response of potato to MAP (11-52-0) and MicroEssentials® S10® (12-40-0-10S).
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.
Evaluate the yield response of winter canola to MicroEssentials® SZ®
Evaluate the yield response of cotton to DAP (18-46-0), DAP + AS (21-0-0-24S), and MicroEssentials® S10® (12-40-0-10S).
Evaluate the yield response of cotton to DAP, MicroEssentials® S10® and MicroEssentials® SZ®.
