Fertility recommendations following drought

By Nick Bancroft

Vice President, Agro-Culture Liquid Fertilizers

With the markets in the favorable position that they are in, I believe that the choice is fairly clear. If growers had less than favorable results, there are likely some nutrients left in the soil that will be available for next year. At the same time, maximum profitability is the goal. The answer is to soil test. I can't imagine why anyone would risk a significant yield loss on a calculation for what may be out there. The soil is a complex environment affected by moisture, temperature, organic matter and soil organism activity. Putting together a nutrient program based on a soil test will give growers the maximum potential for positive yields the following season. Carefully considering nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium micronutrients and pH will give the best opportunity for success. One of my favorite qualities in the growers across this great country is their high level of optimism. Who has more faith than a farmer, to plant a seed, place fertilizer, nurture a crop, looking for a successful harvest. For more information visit our website, www.agroliquid.com.
