Agronomy Tip: Take a Soil Test in 2020
As the weather warms, put soil testing on your spring checklist.
Curt Woolfolk, Senior Agronomist at The Mosaic Company, says not to stray too far away from the fundamentals this spring, whether your 2019 crop was a home run or less than ideal.
“It's always important to come back to those best management practices like a soil test,” Woolfolk says. “Even if you think there were residual nutrients left in your fields from a below average crop in 2019, it’s more important than ever to look at the soil test values for each nutrient. This is what I call nutrient ‘fuel tanks’ for your 2020 crop.”
