Crop Fertility


Applying nitrogen fertilizer to wheat in early spring

Early spring is the time wheat growers implement nitrogen (N) fertilization strategies. This means estimating the amount of N needed and estimating how much of the N might be lost due to excessive rainfall and saturated soils.


Better season-long nutrient supply in soybean a 'low-hanging fruit'

Over the last several decades there have been substantial yield improvements in soybean. Because of new varieties and new agronomic practices, the yield potential in soybean is higher now than ever before. But a lack of updated information on the nutritional needs of soybean crops may be limiting the crop's potential.


MSU and Noble Foundation to coordinate N fixation research

A new federal grant will establish Montana State University and the Noble Foundation in Ardmore, Okla., as global hubs for integrating research activities on the supply and utilization of nitrogen by plants.

Crop Fertility

A historical overview of fertilizer use

With the fertilizer application season approaching, it is once again time for producers to make decisions about their fertility programs. Soon many fertilizer-application rigs will be in the fields, spreading great quantities of fertilizer.


Belarus surprises rivals with China potash deal

Potash Corp quits SQM board over handling of allegations

Potash Corp of Saskatchewan said on Wednesday that its three representatives quit the board of Chilean fertilizer group SQM due to concerns that SQM was not adequately investigating allegations of wrongdoing or fully cooperating with Chile's public prosecutor.


Cotton nutrition and fertilization

A major factor affecting both cotton yield and quality is the availability of adequate and balanced nutrition. Soil nutrients are taken up by cotton in direct proportion to growth and temperature, with total nutrient uptake for nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) tracking cumulative heat units.
