Micronutrients; CEU eligible, $40 fee
In this session we will discuss sulfur needs by crops and soil release of sulfur plus a discussion on Micronutrients. Although they are called “Micro” nutrients, a deficiency in a micronutrient can have a MACRO impact on yield!. For many years, micronutrients have often been left out of fertilizer blends and farmers relied on existing soil levels to meet the plants needs.
With an increased focus on essential secondary and micronutrients like sulfur, zinc, boron and magnesium (to name a few) and new fertilizer coating technologies that allow micronutrients to be impregnated onto fertilizers, more and more growers and retails are including these products in modern fertilizer blends…that’s a great thing as these nutrients are critical to fuel our new high yielding racehorse hybrids.
This 1.5-hour session will do a thorough review of numerous different micronutrients, including nutrient sources and availability, complex nutrient interactions & tie-ups, micronutrients and their relation to critical crop stages as well as their impact on disease and quality.
