Apply the 4Rs of Nutrient Management with Plant Insights

Plant Insights helps corn growers decide on the right source, the right rate, the right time, and the right place for nutrients

The Plant Insights nutrient deficiency report provides a real-time indication of nutrient deficiency symptoms, including indications of both micro (upper canopy) and macro (lower canopy) deficiency symptoms. Timely detection of nutrient deficiency can help you act quickly to reach full yield potential. 

Use the Change from last report data to follow these symptoms week-by-week and see if the plants grow out of it or if you need to consider making adjustments to your nutrient program. If changes are required, use the map to assess the size of the area showing deficiencies and consider variable rate applications to save costs and increase profitability. (Each dot in the report represents one acre.)  

These reports are another tool in your toolbox – together with tissue samples and the field’s historical information. You can decide on the right source (product), at the right rate, at the right time, and on the relevant acres.
