Soybean Starter Applications Show Promise

As producers strive to increase soybean yields, research into adopting high yield strategies shows promise. In recent years, the most consistent results in achieving high yields have been attained when a season-long approach to soybean management was used in conjunction with a starter fertilizer application. In an in-furrow row starter, both phosphorus and potassium greatly influence soybean development. Phosphorus helps to stimulate early root growth and development, and potassium has been proven to enhance nodulation and increase nitrogen fixation in the nodules. Potassium has also been shown to increase leaf size and the total leaf area. Nitrogen is typically [...]
