Of the many factors affecting crop quality and yield, fertility is one of the most important. It is fortunate that producers can control fertility by managing the plant’s nutritional status. Nutrient status is an unseen factor in plant growth, except when deficiencies become so severe that visual symptoms appear on the plant itself. By this time you have already cost yourself yield potential and all you can do is play catch up. By tissue sampling your crops during the growing stages of the plant’s life, you can get the nutrient status at the time of sampling showing you specific nutrient deficiencies in time to correct them and save your high end yield potential. Let the agronomists at Allied Cooperative help you protect your investment by regularly tissue sampling your crops and making the correct recommendations to help ensure a high quality, high yield crop for 2013. You can contact any of Allied Cooperative’s agronomists if you are interested in having tissue sampling done.
