Follow along with this podcast by downloading the PDF presentation where Jim Leverich shares the findings on developing an efficient fertility system for high no-till yields and profitability.
With profit margins running tighter, it’s more important than ever for no-tillers to utilize fertilizers more efficiently. The best way to do that is by choosing the right product and application method for the situation, says Jim Leverich.
The veteran Sparta, Wis., no-tiller and on-farm research coordinator for the University of Wisconsin will discuss a three-part plan that includes frequent soil testing, proper fertilizer selection and appropriate application technologies that could help you boost soil productivity and allow crops to access nutrients more efficiently — all while reducing the risk of leaching and waste.
Jim discusses the importance of understanding the chemical and physical characteristics of no-tilled soils as the foundation of improving fertility management and soil productivity – including the proper use of soil sampling and other technologies available today that can help no-tillers manage nutrients more effectively.
