Challenging Status Quo: Starter Fertilizers and Biostimulants

Explore the impact of innovations on starter fertilizers with agronomist Dr. Jason Haegele and biostimulants specialist, Dr. Eduardo Cancellier. Focused on how early-season growth and vigor set the trajectory for late-season nutrient management and greater yields, we will:

  • Explore the evolving perspectives on starter fertilizers
  • Challenge traditional considerations like phosphate sources, fertilizer placement, and application rates
  • Examine new research on pH management, biostimulants, and nutrient use efficiency
  • Highlight research on ICL’s Nova® PeKacid™ 0-60-20, Agrolution® pHLow™ 11-45-11 +2%Zn and BIOZ Diamond™ 10-0-1 biostimulant.

Join us for a comprehensive discussion on optimizing crop outcomes through innovative approaches to starter fertilizers.
