Maximize Your Soil’s P and N

Apr 20, 2020


It’s one thing to apply nutrients to your soil, and it’s another to optimize their effectiveness in a growing crop, especially with phosphorous and nitrogen. This is what Verdesian Life Sciences calls Nutrient Use Efficiency (NUE).  Verdesian Life Science’s Andy Ulmer shares his insights on how to maximize the benefits of these two important nutrients in your soil.
 
Getting the most from Phosphorus:
The key to maximizing yield and limiting runoff is to build a bigger plant both above and below the ground that efficiently utilizes phosphorus from the soil and ensures maximum plant uptake of this vital nutrient. Studies show that as much as 75 percent of applied phosphorous (P) can become tied up and unavailable to your crop.  When added to your phosphorous fertilizers, AVAIL helps protect your investment from “P” fixation in the soil and keeping your phosphorus fertilizer available and accessible for nutrient uptake. AVAIL Phosphorus Fertilizer Enhancer can be added to your current dry or liquid P fertilizer applications and can be used broadcast, in-furrow or 2x2. Over seventy-five million acres have been treated with Avail. Across the past several years over one hundred corn trials across the country show an average increase of 7 bushels per acre were reported.  AVAIL is your go-to Phosphorus Fertilizer Enhancer with a 3.2x return on your investment (ROI).
 
Protecting your Nitrogen investment:
Nitrogen (N) efficiency is always top of mind for farmers because it is visually evident when there are nitrogen loss and deficiencies. We know that the yield monitor or weigh wagon in the fall can make this loss of plant nutrition even more obvious. Keeping nitrogen protected is key for a broader application window and better peace of mind going into the growing season. NutriSphere Nitrogen Fertilizer Manager can be used with your liquid and dry nitrogen applications and is a proven product that can impact all three forms of nitrogen loss: volatilization, leaching and denitrification. Nutrisphere -N products have been used with great confidence on well over fifty million acres. NutriSphere-N corn research shows a 9.4 bushels per acre increase in yield on granular nitrogen applications and 10.4 bushels per acre in yield on liquid nitrogen applications. Nutrisphere-N also protects soil health and water quality. Trust the Nutrisphere-N line of Nitrogen Fertility Manager products on your dry and liquid nitrogen fertilizer applications this growing season.

For many farmers, spring and summer means time in the tractor cab and in the fields. Although they were generally a little later getting in the field this year due to a rainy early spring, producers remain hopeful for a good 2021 fall harvest.
