Fertilizer before every crop important

October 13, 2017

 

A technical agronomist for Brandt Consolidated believes farmers should consider fertilizing in front of every crop.

 

“We’ve got growers that for whatever reason have chosen to keep applying nutrients and they’re seeing a benefit as high-fertility soils can help weather proof your crop,” explains Dan Froelich.

 

Froelich researched soil tests from the area dating back to 2004 and found what he considers disturbing information. He was surprised with levels for P and K. In 2004 and 2005, phosphate levels averaged 72.15 and are now at an average of 58.6, which is a considerable drop.

 

Potassium levels also dropped, according to Froelich. Since beans are a big user of K, growers are not keeping up.
