Description

Improvements in crop genetics and increased yield potential with a more intensive production system typically involve a greater demand for commercial fertilizers to secure maximum yields. This raises the question about the role of secondary and micronutrient fertilizers to increase yields. Some soil conditions such as high soil pH and low organic matter may also contribute to decrease the supply of micronutrients to crops. Consequently, there is an increasing interest from producers about the potential benefits of micronutrients as complement of their fertilization programs to maximize yields in corn and soybean.
