Do Starter Fertilizers Pay?

Published on Tuesday, June 13, 2017

Beck's Practical Farm Research (PFR)® team is constantly evaluating new products and practices that show promise in helping farmers succeed. Some of the products we have been testing over the last few years are starter fertilizers. 

In this agronomy update, I am joined by Miles McGovney, PFR agronomist in Colfax, Iowa as we evaluate our 2017 starter timing study. This field was planted on April 11, 2017 into 60ºF soils. A week of warm weather was then followed by cool, wet conditions, leading to noticeable differences in plant growth between the starter and the control. 

Check out this video to learn more about this study. You can also view the 2016 results from Iowa by
