Discover why crop nutrition is one of the most effective ways to boost crop production.

Crop Nutrient Removal

Up to 60% of your yield is dependent on soil fertility. And as crops continue to pull nutrients out of the soil, it’s more important than ever to invest in replenishing your fields.

* Reported nutrient removal coefficients may vary regionally depending on growing conditions. Use locally available data whenever possible.
** DM = dry matter basis; otherwise moisture content is standard marketing convention or at the stated moisture content.
