H.J. Baker to sponsor webinar on micronutrients
Wesley Haun, research agronomist at H.J. Baker’s Tiger-Sul Products and Martin Campfield, director of Tiger-Sul product management and international sales will lead an agriculture webinar on “The Agronomics and Economics on Micronutrients.”
Crops need a full spectrum of nutrient, NPKS and micronutrients, to maximize yields. Research has demonstrated that micronutrients are required in small quantities and are essential to plants. The challenge is three fold:
- Apply the correct micronutrient types and quantities for the crop;
- Precisely distribute them;
- Ensure they are converted into plant available forms
Attendees will learn about the unique properties of sulphur; why its interactions with micronutrients make it the ideal partner for micronutrient delivery; and how to determine the correct quantities of micronutrients. In addition there will be discussion on the value of precision spatial distribution and how to improve it to ensure enhanced nutrient availability. This webinar will explain how to prevent deficiencies and save money on logistics, while providing the highest nutrient value per pound of fertilizer. Successful growers understand the economics of maximizing yield, and know sulphur and micronutrient can produce higher yields.
