Spring Plant Nutrition Checklist: 4 Ways to Start Strong
1. PLAN AHEAD BY LOOKING BACK
Work with your WinField agronomist to review last year’s tissue sample results to detect any nutrient deficiencies in your area. Compare findings with fertility programs to identify gaps that could be treated early with starter fertilizers.
2. ASSESS THE SOIL PROFILE
Review fall soil samples or gather them as soon as spring conditions allow to evaluate what nutrients are present in the field.
3. LAY THE FOUNDATION
Once nutrient needs are determined, consider the optimum nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium (NPK) blend. Also, adding WinField micronutrients to the starter mix will help increase the quantity of nutrients available and the length of time they are available for plant uptake.
4. PROVIDE A BOOST
WinField Ascend® Plant Growth Regulator (PGR) gives crops an unparalleled advantage. When applied with the starter mix, Ascend® PGR promotes bigger roots, stronger stalks and faster emergence, giving plants the boost they need for a strong start and more uniform emergence.
