Nutrient Measurements Are Key to Soil Health
Plants pull different nutrients out of the soil at different rates. Without fertilizer or a crop rotation, this process would eventually leave soil barren.
The University of Illinois Extension has been studying Potassium and Nitrogen removal rates over the past three harvests to get the most up to date numbers. They will present their updated findings in January at a regional Illinois Crop Management Conference and online. The research is an update to the current University of Illinois Crop Handbook from 2009.
