Crop Nutrition Week to Help Growers Cultivate Fertilizer Management Strategies

St. Johns, Mich. (Jan. 9, 2023) Crop Nutrition Week will connect growers and agronomy experts for five days of online learning Feb. 6-10. The week, in its inaugural year, will feature a wide range of topics that answer growers’ biggest questions, from how to balance fertilizer input costs and yield goals to how to understand and act on soil test results. 

Crop Nutrition Week includes two panel discussions moderated by agriculture journalist Bill Spiegel and featuring agronomists from AgroLiquid and Next Level Ag. The first, Nutrient Know-How on Tuesday, Feb. 7, will discuss the importance of soil tests and how to use results to balance nutrients for the best outcome. 

“Many times I visit with a grower and they have a soil test that’s 10 or 15 years old, and that’s not necessarily a good indication of what’s in their soil,” says Stephanie Zelinko, national agronomist with AgroLiquid. “I like to see one that’s 2 to 3 years old, and this is used as a good road map to identify what nutrients you have in your soil and, probably more critically, what nutrients you might be lacking.” 

The second panel discussion, The Agronomy Economy on Thursday, Feb. 9, will cover using trade-offs and data-informed decision-making to build a crop nutrition strategy. 

If you look at nitrogen prices and 70% of your fertilizer budget is going to nitrogen, it’s natural to panic and pull back in other areas,” says Galynn Beer, product management lead for AgroLiquid. “In reality, supporting nutrients can help pull down the nitrogen budget by applying less without a cost to yield.” 

Crop Nutrition Week will also deliver interactive content straight to growers via email and social media, with daily topics packed full of information that will make an impact in the field.

Registration is open at cropnutritionweek.com. The first 200 attendees can also claim a free swag bag while supplies last and register for a chance to win a Polaris RANGER XP 1000 Premium.
