Corn growers use tissue sampling to plan fertilizer applications
Suwannee Valley corn growers prove the value of in-season plant tissue sampling for fertilizer application
Sending ear-leaf tissue samples to the lab at various growth stages:
- helps growers to measure actual plant nitrogen uptake,
- allows for in-season adjustment of fertilizer additions,
- optimizes fertilizer use (saving money), and
- considered one of the many BMP (Best Management Practices) recommended by FDACS.
