Nutrien's Gregg Schmitz on Adopting Biochemistry in the Field

Posted by Agricen

Nutrien Ag Solutions’ Gregg Schmitz has witnessed transformational changes in agriculture–from the birth of modern crop protection to the growth of today's market for ag biostimulants and biologicals, even leading some of the early, pivotal field trials that brought Accomplish technology to Nutrien's row crop customers.

We recently spoke with Gregg about his take on this biocatalyst technology, and why growers who aren't already using Accomplish LM, Titan XC or Extract will want to consider adopting this biochemistry in their fields in 2020.

Using Extract PBA to Maximize the Nutrient Content of Manure

Posted by Agricen

Although animal manures can be a rich source of nutrients for crops, the nutrients found in themwhether from swine, beef cattle, dairy cows or poultry–are not always in a form that is readily available for crop uptake.

Phosphorus is a good example. With its negative charge, phosphorus easily binds to positively charged micronutrients, such as those found in animal rations or dairy cow footbath solutions. Once bound, it remains in a form that is unavailable to the plant until transformed through natural processes (e.g., weather, soil microbes) or agronomic management. As a result, growers who have been applying animal manures may see high levels of unavailable phosphorus on their soil tests (indicated by a high Bray P2 value), but a deficit of plant-available phosphorus (low/lagging Bray P1).

Extract PBA, which helps to convert P2 to P1, is one of the agronomic tools available to help growers be more efficient with their nutrient applications by making phosphorus and other nutrients found in manures, crops residues and the soil more readily available for crop uptake.

How Do Microbes Influence Nitrogen Use Efficiency?

Posted by Agricen

Many growers apply the “4R” framework for nutrient management—using the right fertilizer source, at the right rate, at the right time and in the right place—to more closely match crop nutrient needs to fertilization practices while supporting sustainable agriculture goals.

Guided by this framework, growers have been able to improve their fertilizer use efficiency and reduce nutrient loss to the environment. However, despite best practices, an estimated 40% to 50% of applied nitrogen is either immobilized by soil microorganisms or lost from the soil through denitrification or leaching, rendering it unavailable to the crop. Download Agricen's Soil Microbiology & Biochemistry BookletAlthough some soil microorganisms contribute to nitrogen loss or immobilization in the soil, others can have a positive influence on nitrogen use efficiency by enhancing the availability or stability of nitrogen in the soil or by enhancing root growth and physiological functions.

Extract PBA Helps Overcome Phosphorus Deficiency in Fallow Soil

Posted by Agricen

Wet conditions in the spring of 2019 created major planting challenges for many growers in the Corn Belt. Due to flooding and excess moisture in the fields, an estimated 19.4 million acres were left unplanted. Unfortunately, this creates favorable conditions for fallow syndrome, a phosphorus deficiency in the soil that can negatively impact next season’s crop.

Growers with fields left fallow in 2019 should consider making a fall or spring application of Extract Powered by Accomplish® (Extract PBA) to overcome the potential impact of fallow syndrome. Extract PBA helps growers maximize yields by releasing bound nutrients in the soil, making them available to the next crop.

[Watch Webinar] How to Make Your Dry Fertilizer Investment Go Farther

Posted by Agricen

Our recent webinar, "How to Make Your Dry Fertilizer Investment Go Farther," is now available to watch online.

During the webinar, you'll learn how incorporating a fertilizer biocatalyst into your dry fertilizer application can:

  • Maximize your fertilizer efficiency
  • Improve nutrient recovery in the first year after applying P and K fertilizers
  • Help you gain greater return on investment and greater yield opportunities from dry fertilizer applications

You'll also see recent field trial results with Titan XC, which can be used with dry fertilizers to improve nutrient availability and crop performance.
