While the 2016 crop continues to take shape, I wanted to take a minute to talk about the value of tissue sampling in the pursuit of high yielding crops. Whether you want to take a snap shot of your current fertility program,or you are trying to find your crop’s hidden hunger, collecting tissue samples throughout the season can be a rewarding experience. Tissue sampling gives you a chance to see if fertilizer rates or placement are providing adequate nutrients to the growing crop. Think of this like you or I going to the doctor for a checkup! Alternatively, we look to tissue sampling to try and find a crops hidden hunger. We can pull these samples throughout the season to see if values change or to give you an opportunity for in-season applications of nutrients. If you would like to try tissue sampling on your farm this season, you can reach out to your Beck’s dealer or seed advisor and we can help you get started. As always,be safe and enjoy another spring season!
