Micronutrients: A Top Priority

The Maximum Farming System Ensures a Timely Diet for Maximum Growth Potential

For years, we’ve often heard that N, P and K are critical for plant growth. However, much less priority has been given to the importance of micronutrients. In order to achieve optimum crop performance, it is essential to understand micronutrients and their vital role in both sufficiency and timing. 

Each developmental stage in the crop’s life cycle has very specific needs and requirements to achieve ultimate performance. Similar to the macronutrients, there is typically a base level availability of micronutrients required to sustain the crop throughout its lifetime with specific periods of peak demand. Maximizing crop yield means understanding and delivering these requirements in the form the plant needs it and when it needs it most.
