Assessing soil nutrient levels and understanding nutrient availability is important to obtaining high corn yield potential. Advances in corn agronomic management practices, breeding, and biotechnology continue to have an impact on corn yield potential. Research suggests that corn products with transgenic insect protection, such as rootworm resistance, may have increased root growth leading to increased nutrient uptake and yield potential. This increase in nutrient use may lead to changes in fertilizer recommendations.
