What plant nutrient levels are needed to meet my yield potential goals?

Today’s high-performing genetics require the right levels of top-quality macro and micro plant nutrients to reach their optimal yield potential. As this chart demonstrates, there’s a considerable difference between the amount of nutrients needed for 150- and for 300-bushel corn. To meet nutrient requirements for your yield goals, assess the amount of nutrients available in each field’s soil and supplement with additional plant nutrients accordingly.

How can I optimize my crop protection investment?


Review weed, insect and disease pressure from last season to help forecast future crop protection needs. By attending a WinField spray clinic or scheduling an on-farm sprayer assessment, you can fine-tune your equipment and maximize your crop protection investment. Adding the right adjuvants to the tank mix will help optimize applications in the tank, in the air and on the plant. For example, InterLock® adjuvant has been shown to increase spray coverage deeper within the crop canopy for better product performance.
