Nutrient management and stewardship was a hot topic at the 2016 Farm Progress Show, and the team from GROWMARK and the FS System was on hand during this year’s event to speak with growers about a variety of innovative solutions to all of their nutrient management concerns.
Tim Berkland, Strategic Agronomy Marketing Manager for GROWMARK, sat down with AgWired’s Cindy Zimmerman to discuss some of the company’s latest nutrient management programs, including N-Watch , which pulls different soil samples at different times of the year to get a comprehensive soil profile for growers to stay as informed as possible when moving forward with nutrient management strategies.
“Nitrogen is so variable, it’s so weather dependent and changes from year to year, and N-Watch is just one program that we’re using to help growers dial in their nitrogen program,” said Berkland. “We work with growers on strategizing and building a nutrient plan, trying to place those nutrients at the right place and the right time while using the right source and the right.”
