Today’s high yielding hybrids and increasing population densities have researchers once again looking at the quantity and timing of nutrient uptake throughout the growing season. Each macro and micronutrient has a unique role and individual characteristics within the growing plant. Having the right rate at the right time can definitely influence the performance of high yielding hybrids.

How many times have we heard this adage or something like it? In real terms, it basically says that once we lay the foundation for something we will have to live with it - and the consequences. It's kind of like planting; the first step in a crop's life, and probably the one we have the most control over. When you think about it, most farmers
