Too often, conventional growers make the mistake of thinking that “if a little bit is good, more will be better.” However, that type of thinking not only leads to wasted input dollars, it can also lead to unwanted changes in soil quality that negatively impact crop productivity.

To positively impact soil health, Ag Spectrum associates know that all material inputs must be applied according to the 5Rs of fertilization (right product, right form, right rate, right timing, and right placement). By doing so, the beneficial effects of such materials can outweigh the potential negative effects they can have on one or more soil properties.

"The industry gets people concerned with removal of P and K. But what about the other nutrients like calcium, boron, sulfur, and magnesium, or any other micronutrient? If you're deficient in any nutrient at the wrong point in the growing season, that becomes your yield-limiting factor. Adding any amount of P & K won't matter." - Garry Brumm, Ag Spectrum Director

The texture and structure of soil, plus the organic matter present, influences the plant's ability to use the available water and nutrients in the soil solution. Soil texture and structure influence water movement and retention, soil temperature and soil fertility.
