Each year an estimated 47 million tons of phosphate fertilizer is used globally for production agriculture – costing over $41 billion. However, phosphorus efficiency in grains is estimated to be less than 10 percent.

In 2018, West Central launched a research initiative, called the Phosphorus Project, to study phosphorus deficiencies in fields. Using Climate Fieldview ™ digital ag tools the research worked to find solutions to increase phosphorus availability and grower profitability.

In this course, you will discover how West Central products can help increase phosphorus availability and offer specialized solutions for your grower customers, using products like the Levesol® family, including Paralign®.
