Leah GuffeyAudio, Fertilizer, NAFB

_DSC2634Maria Abbott is an agronomist with the crop nutrients division of CHS. She talks about XLR-rate which is a low salt starter fertilizer that has been on the market for just over a year.

“We think about 40% of the corn is actually put down with a starter fertilizer”

Maria says that boosting yields is the goal for XLR-rate and that it promotes early season growth in cold, wet soil. Growers are looking for the extra push to boost those yields come harvest time.
