Verdesian Acre Day shows potential in Troy, Ohio plots

Verdesian held a field day in Troy, Ohio recently.

One of the topics on farmers’ minds at the event was phosphorus run-off.  Dr. Darin Lickfeldt, technical development manager for the eastern cornbelt explained that if producers can use soil conservation practices to keep soil in the fields then phosphorus is much less likely to get into Lake Erie and other waterways.

The group toured both soybean and corn test plots. Some with no treatments and others with more than one type.  Treatments applied included AVAIL® phosphorus fertilizer enhancer, NutriSphere-N® nitrogen fertilizer manager, Tuxedo® micronutrient seed treatment and Preside® CL soybean inoculant.

The average estimated corn and soybean yields for this site in Troy, Ohio, are projected at 175-bushel yield for corn and 50-bushel per acre for soybeans.
