LIMITING YIELD FACTORS
THERE ARE A VARIETY OF YIELD LIMITING FACTORS THROUGHOUT THE SEASON THAT CAN IMPACT YIELDS POTENTIAL SUCH AS:
- Soil pH
- Base Fertility
- Uneven Emergence
- Plant Disease
- Nitrogen Management
AgriGold Yield Masters have discovered a once hidden yield limiting factor in corn plants. We have learned there is a direct correlation between internal plant nutrition and yield. If a grower can better map critical nutrient levels at precise growth stages, they can minimize this limiting factor and maximize the yield potential of their plants.
A BETTER SOLUTION TO BUILDING A BETTER PLANT
For decades, growers have relied on both generalized fertility recommendations and visual cues to determine if a corn plant has adequate fertility to achieve maximum yields. Growers have also tried numerous single nutrient fertilizer trials and achieved mixed results and much confusion.
AgriGold has found that by compiling years of tissue sampling data from our Yield Masters we can map the nutrient flow within the corn plant. These nutrient data maps are sorted by growing degree units and final yield, giving our growers unprecedented insight on the utilization and fluctuation of nutrients in the plant and its impact on yield.
The key differentiator is that AgriGold has collected over 4 years of unique tissue data from a large cross section of acres in North America. This data creates a roadmap to compare, contrast and analyze your current plant’s nutritional needs. The result is a proactive and precise nutrient strategy that ensures your fields have the building blocks to build more yield potential.
