3. Cost of Sulfur - Steve Wagner
Sulfur deficiency in Michigan fields is unpredictable and the benefit of sulfur application will vary from field to field. Keeping the cost down for sulfur applications is a key to profitably applying sulfur.
4. Risks and benefits of applying boron fertilizer to soybeans - Michael Staton (MSU)
Despite the low probability for soybeans to respond to boron fertilizer, yield increases have been reported in some university trials. Yield responses are more likely to occur under conditions where boron is likely to be deficient (coarse-textured and organic soils due to leaching losses, lake bed soils as soil pH increases from 6.5 to 8.0).
5. Thoughts on Seeding Rates for Corn - R.L. (Bob) Nielsen (Purdue)
“Results suggest that optimum plant populations for corn grown under typical yield levels and growing conditions are in the neighborhood of 31,150 plants per acre, or seeding rates between 32,500 and 34,600 seeds per acre," he said. "The results further suggest that corn grown under moderate to severe drought stress conditions may perform best at plant populations no higher than 28,000 plants per acre and perhaps as low as 21,000 plants per acre under truly severe growing conditions.”
