It is crucial that crops receive the appropriate amount and the correct form of each essential nutrient. Whether it is a primary macronutrient such as nitrogen, phosphorus or potassium; a secondary macronutrient including calcium, magnesium or sulfur; or one of the micronutrients including iron, manganese, copper, boron, zinc, molybdenum, chloride or cobalt. They each have an important role to play in the plants’ life and are all an essential part of creating a healthy, high yielding crop.

Join us in this course as we explore more about the role each nutrient plays in the plants’ development. Hear from Steve Roehl, West Central’s product development data and research analyst as he helps us understand the complete nutrient cycle and how to plan a more effective nutrient management plan.
