Nutrient Management Service
In many cases, just knowing how to properly apply nitrogen and herbicides can immediately save growers $40-50/acre, while later improving yields. Specially formulated P & K are also critical for maximizing kernel numbers and need to be applied to the seed at planting time.
Over the last several years, Ag Spectrum Company has funded research to determine the advantages of foliar feeding as an integral part of nutrient management. That research has shown that when the proper materials are foliar applied to crops frequently enough to maintain energy production in the plant, yields increase and soil test values improve.
Finally, Purdue University research has revealed how critical it is to select hybrids based on their response to nitrogen timing and potassium uptake. Ag Spectrum understands and utilizes this type of practical research to make grower-specific recommendations.
