Sponsored: How Do Versa Max AC and Fortix Affect Yield and Profitability?

In this first-year evaluation of foliar applications, Beck's Practical Farm Research (PFR)® team evaluted the products Versa Max™ AC and Fortix®, to determine how they affect yield and profitability. These products were applied at the V5 growth stage alone and in combinations of each other to determine if there are were any synergistic effects. 

So what were the results?

“The V5 growth stage application of Versa Max AC occurs at a time when the corn plant is transitioning from relying on seminal roots for nutrients, to nutrient uptake through the nodal roots which are developing. In exceptionally wet years, the nitrogen may have leached too deep in the soil for the roots to reach it. Since Versa Max AC provides a small amount of key nutrients during this time, it could help the plant develop roots to uptake nutrients.” 
-Pat Holloway, Beck’s Field Agronomist
