5 Key Local MN Corn Trends

We all know that agronomy is local and that’s why we take a lot of time and effort to collect the best data to make sound recommendations.  That’s why we have taken thousands of tissue samples over the past 3 years.  We think it’s better to know what’s going to happen before it happens, don’t you?  Hopefully this data helps you make better agronomic decisions in the upcoming weeks.
 
5 Key Learnings from V4-V8 Corn Tissue Samples:

  • Boron is responsive or deficient 95% of the time.  It’s almost a guarantee. More Info on Boron.
  • 89% of samples come back responsive or deficient in Zinc.  Only Boron has a higher percentage. More Info on Zinc.
  • Nitrogen and Sulfur are adequate around 50% from V4-V8.  An early deficiency may give you a sign of things to come. More Info on Sulfur.
  • Potassium is adequate 75% of the time.  We feel like our growers are making sound decisions with their potassium applications.
  • Over 90% of samples are adequate for Magnesium and Calcium.  Soils in our area are usually rich with these nutrients and it shows through tissue samples.

    Response to Nitrogen Scores

    Nitrogen is one of the most frustrating, but important nutrient to grow a crop. Ensuring nitrogen is available when the plant needs it is important, but since nitrogen is unstable that can be difficult. We can lose nitrogen through the air or soil.
