Fertilizer prices have been increasing in recent months; however, per acre fertilizer costs should be lower in 2014 than in recent years.
Lower commodity prices, high land rent costs and the desire to get a running start on the 2014 growing season will combine to make use of starter fertilizers an attractive option for farmers this spring.
Many producers could benefit by using starter fertilizer when planting corn. Starter fertilizer is simply the placement of some fertilizer, usually nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P), near the seed — which "jump starts" growth in the spring.
