Placement and rate considerations for nitrogen application with starter fertilizer

What types of considerations concerning placement and rates of starter fertilizer should producers keep in mind this spring? Read more from Dr. Ruiz Diaz, K-State's Soil Fertility Extension Specialist.

In-furrow fertilizers for wheat

Wheat is considered a highly responsive crop to band-applied fertilizers, particularly phosphorus. Wheat plants typically show a significant increase in fall tillers and better root development with the use of starter fertilizer.

Nutrient availability in poultry manure

Poultry litter can provide a significant and important supply of nutrients for crop production in areas of Kansas where a supply of litter is available. Poultry litter can serve as an excellent complement to commercial nitrogen (N) fertilizers.

In-furrow fertilizers for wheat

Wheat is considered a highly responsive crop to band-applied fertilizers, particularly phosphorus (P). Application of P as starter fertilizer can be an effective method for part or all the P needs. Wheat plants typically show a significant increase in fall tillers and better root development with the use of starter fertilizer (P and N).

Starter fertilizer for corn - Nitrogen placement and rate

Starter fertilizer typically involves placing a small amount of fertilizer, usually nitrogen and phosphorus, near the seed at planting time. Producers should be very cautious about applying starter fertilizer that includes high rates of nitrogen or potassium.

Is there any value to starter fertilizer on soybeans?

Soybeans can remove significant amounts of nutrients per bushel of grain harvested compared to other row crops. Because of this, soybeans can respond to starter fertilizer applications on low-testing soils, particularly phosphorus.
