Boost Winter Wheat Yields
Posted on July 23, 2018
Wheat responds to phosphorus more than any other commodity crop grown in the Midwest and Great Plains states. Providing fertilizer with the seed during planting is the most effective method of phosphorus placement for maximum yield potential.
The Andersons offers PureGrade® Liquid Fertilizers that are chloride-free with a low salt index and neutral pH. These products are formulated for placement in or near the seed furrow during wheat planting and will not rust equipment, plug screens, or settle out. Plus, PureGrade Liquid Fertilizers are high in orthophosphates for strong, deep root systems resistant to drought and winter kill.
HIGH-PHOSPHORUS STARTER INCREASES WHEAT YIELDS
Wheat responds to row-applied phosphorous more than any other commodity crop grown in the Midwest and Great Plains states. Banding fertilizer with the seed during planting is the most effective method of phosphorus placement for wheat. In a Kansas State University trial, two gallons per acre of a high-phosphorous liquid starter, row-applied at planting time, doubled yields!
Kansas State University trial, Fort Hayes research station. Average yields over a three-year period. Low phosphorus testing soil (4 ppm). Lower than average yields due to abnormally dry conditions. The liquid fertilizer used in this study was a lowsalt, neutral pH, non-corrosive, starter fertilizer comparable to The Andersons PureGrade® GoldStart® fertilizer products.
