Combat soybean nutrient deficiencies in 3 simple ways
Low nutrient levels may be easier to overlook than invading insects or diseases in soybean fields, but their effects can be equally damaging to yields. According to the Iowa State University Extension, nutrient deficiencies during crop development can stunt soybean growth despite good growing conditions.
To combat in-season nutrient deficiencies, Syngenta recommends following these three important steps:
- Use leaf tissue sampling to identify in-season nutrient deficiencies
- Apply a foliar fertilizer to help with nutrient deficiencies and variable soil types
- Work with a local fertility expert to build a complete fertility plan
Develop a sound strategy now to proactively avoid obstacles that can harm soybean crops and ultimately help grow more soybeans.
