Saving Money Feeding a Crop – Nutrient Budgeting

Without nutrient budgeting being addressed then the nutrients available to the crop can become deficient or in excess which can lead to poor crop yields, quality, and loss of profit margin.
Key Messages
• Sampling – Get your soil tested. Know what you are working with.
• Measure – Calculate what tonnage or volume of nutrient source you have.
• Compromise- The budget may never be 100% correct but you need a starting point.
