Farming Begins in the Soil: Phosphorus

Farming Begins in the Soil: Phosphorus

Proper management of phosphorus applications is key for optimizing profit potential, as well as water quality

Phosphorus applications – in what form they go down and when – are specific to the region, soil type and crop need.

Continuous improvement on every acre that is both profitable and sustainable is something we discuss regularly. When it comes to phosphorus, we have more work to do on elevating this macronutrient in farmers’ minds and helping them to ensure their applications are efficient. Our waterways depend on it.

Much like any aspect of farm management, the many intricacies of managing phosphorus lack any one-size-fits-all solution, but sustainability practices have long-term payoff that can reduce phosphorus runoff, increase fertilizer use efficiency and contribute to higher yields.
