3-Year $12.07/A. Average ROI for P Max Plus™

This three-year study evaluated the yield and profitability of P Max Plus™ when compared to a standard in-furrow starter application of 7-22-5.
 
P Max Plus is a combination of P Max, which improves P uptake, and 7-20-3 ammonium polyphosphate liquid fertilizer and micronutrients. The P Max Plus treatment yield was 8.7 Bu./A. higher than the control. Three-year data demonstrates a positive return on investment (ROI) every year. However, this year’s $26.98 ROI is a significant increase from the norm. 
 
Agronomy Fundamentals
Very soon after application, phosphorus (P) converts to unavailable forms through the process of P fixation. 
 
• Generally, 20 percent less of the applied P is available in the first year of application
 
• There is little P movement in the soil
 
• P is generally lost through crop removal or soil erosion
 
• P remains in the rooting zone for later crops, becoming available over time
