To begin the 2020 growing season, AgroLiquid Senior Sales Manager Galynn Beer is advising farmers to get a soil test. “I would expect with these wet soils heading into spring, guys will want to get phosphorus down early and get that root system established.” Beer says the microbial activity may have been impacted by the saturated soils. “You may have extra residue to contend with and you want to factor that into the nitrogen application,” said Beer. “You might put a normal application of nitrogen out there and some of that gets pulled in by the microbes to decompose residue and all of a sudden you have a crop that looks nitrogen deficient.”
