Phosphorus-based starter fertilizer can increase corn grain yield and test weight, North Dakota State University research shows.
That finding is the result of a decade of NDSU phosphorus-based starter fertilizer trials in east-central North Dakota. The trials evaluated corn response primarily with liquid 10-34-0 applied using different methods and rates.
Here are some highlights of the research:
More information about this research is available in an NDSU Extension Service publication, “Corn Response to Phosphorus Starter Fertilizer in North Dakota.” It’s available online athttps://tinyurl.com/phosphorus-starter-fertilizer. A printed version is available from the Carrington Research Extension Center or NDSU Extension county offices.
“The published research summary should assist North Dakota farmers as they make corn plant nutrition plans for the upcoming crop season,” says Greg Endres, an NDSU Extension cropping systems specialist at the Carrington Research Extension Center.
