Increase Yield Potential with Biostimulants

Understanding Biostimulants Biostimulant is an unregulated umbrella term for products that stimulate natural processes to enhance/benefit nutrient uptake, nutrient efficiency, tolerance to stress, crop quality and ultimately increase yield potential. The ultimate goal is always yield. Biostimulants can increase yield by keeping the crop at a “steady state” allowing photosynthesis and respiration to be performed […]

The 4 R’s of Potassium

Potassium (K) is an essential plant macronutrient taken up in large quantities, like nitrogen. In plants, K does not become part of complex organic molecules. It moves as a free ion and performs many functions. Plants that are supplied with adequate K are better able to withstand stress, insect damage, and many plant diseases compared […]

The 4 R’s in Nitrogen

When it comes to crop nutrients, nitrogen (N) is often the first nutrient that comes to mind. Nitrogen has a clear positive corn yield response; however, making the N applications maximize profits can be more difficult. When apply any nutrient you should always follow the 4 R’s: Right Source, Right Rate, Right Time, and Right […]

Avoiding Hidden Hunger in Your Crops with Micronutrients

Watch out for Hidden Hunger this season! Symptoms of nutrient deficiencies may not be seen; however, this doesn’t mean the crop has a sufficient supply of micronutrients. Often times crops can be in the hidden hunger range, where crop yield is affected, but symptoms do not appear. Micronutrients are essential for plant growth and reproduction. […]
