In a recent Agricen survey, 85% of growers indicated that they would be applying dry fertilizer this year, with 50% reporting that they would be making an application in the fall. The upcoming webinar will provide an overview of the key factors for growers to consider when planning their fall dry fertilizer programs, including the best ways to increase the efficiency of applied phosphorous (P) and potassium (K) to maximize yield. Participants will also gain a better understanding of crop P and K demands, P and K drawdown, and the impact of fertilizer additives such as Titan PBA, a biochemical fertilizer catalyst, on dry programs.
“Growers want a great return on investment every time they put an application in the field,” said John Wolf, Director of Commercial Development at Agricen. “Growers who participate in these webinars will learn the best ways to do just that with their fall dry programs.”
