High Yields – What is Possible & What is Not

9:00 am Tuesday, January 16

MNP Theatre

Speaker

Maximum yield is a function of crop genetics, solar radiation, water, and nutrients.  This presentation will attempt to answer what crop yields are possible and what fertility and moisture levels are required to get there. Fertility products are necessary to meet plant fertility needs, so a discussion on how to decide whether a product works or not will follow. A “good” product should provide both agronomic and economic benefits to producers.  Its behavior must be predictable within reason and its application supported by ample scientific evidence.
