It has been a traditional practice to apply extra fertilizer prior to planting corn to sustain the following year’s soybean crop. However, as soybean yields climb through genetic, biological, and crop protection advancements, it is increasingly important to analyze and maintain soil fertility to maximize soybean yield potential. This is not only due to increased soybean production but also increases in corn production, environmental concerns, and financial considerations.

As with any crop, nutrients are needed to sustain biological functions, help protect the plant from disease and other stresses, and ultimately create yield. Learn more about each nutrient and how they effect plant growth in this issue of SeedScoop.
