The Agronomists, Ep 147: Starter fertilizer decisions with Lyle Cowell and Peter Johnson

When it comes to phosphorus, having early availability close to the seed is of utmost importance to support early seedling development.

Too much phosphorus too close can also cause seedling toxicity and death. What’s the right amount for starter fertilizer?

There’s no one right answer, but there are several considerations for phosphorus management at seeding, but also throughout a rotation. To dive in to the low down on P, this episode of The Agronomists features Lyle Cowell of Nutrien, and RealAg’s resident agronomist Peter “Wheat Pete” Johnson.
