When is an in-furrow starter most likely to work?
WHEN IS AN IN-FURROW STARTER MOST LIKELY TO WORK?
Phosphorus (P) has limited soil mobility and in cold or wet conditions, can limit root growth. No-till acres and early planted fields are prime candidates for an increased likelihood of response to in-furrow nutrient applications, especially those containing P. Target soils with low P tests or coarse-textured soils.
Plants take up phosphorus in the orthophosphate form.
IN-FURROW NUTRITION PRODUCTS
WHAT’S DIFFERENT ABOUT THESE PRODUCTS?
Because plants take up phosphorus (P) in the orthophosphate form, many of these products contain that form of P with the goal of providing the plant an instant boost of P in a readily available form. They also contain other compounds with varying goals of improving the stability or availability of P in the soil.
