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.
