Phosphate Fertilizer for Your Grain Crops
The balance of nutrients in your grain fertilizer will vary depending on the type of grain you are trying to grow as well as how and when you are fertilizing. For example, if you are planting a shorter, stiffer variety of grain, it will need a fertilizer with a higher nitrogen content versus the taller varieties that require less nitrogen. If conditions are favorable for the grain such as well-drained soils and you know diseases can be controlled, you may want to add even more nitrogen.
When to Apply Grain Fertilizer
In general, it is a commonly accepted practice to apply nutrients to the fertilizer band at planting. This provides the young seed with the nutrients they need to grow and create a successful yield. Since nitrogen is needed for the growth of some types of grains such as winter wheat, you may consider splitting the application of nitrogen fertilizers so that the grains have a constant source of nitrogen to feed on, allowing them to produce higher yields.
When applying seed, it is generally accepted to apply fertilizer at the same time. There are many different methods for applying seed and fertilizer. These methods include spray seeding and forage seeding. There are also different times for optimal planting of your grains such as with winter wheat or springs oats. Whenever you decide to plant, our fertilizers will be ready for your use and ready to help your crops produce a fantastic yield.
