Optimize Your Corn's Yield Potential
Jun 22, 2020
Nourish crops season-long with foliar nutrient applications.
If you are looking to optimize plant health in corn, consider foliar applications of three key nutrients: zinc, manganese and boron.
1. Zinc is one of the most commonly deficient nutrients in corn. Supplementing foliar zinc at V5 to V8 with postemergence herbicide applications in corn is ideal timing to optimize plant health ahead of reproductive stages. MAX-IN® Zinc with CornSorb® technology is a foliar nutrient product that increases droplet spread, droplet coverage and humectancy for improved movement of nutrients through the leaf cuticle to internal leaf structures.??
2. Manganese is an essential micronutrient for photosynthesis. The corn plant maximizes photosynthesis from V9 to V15, making it an ideal time for a manganese application. Manganese is typically tied up in the soil, so one of the best ways to get it into the plant is via a foliar application. MAX-IN Flexi MN is an effective product that supplies zinc, manganese, and boron, which are vital for plant health and vigorous growth.
3. Boron is critical ahead of pollination time, as it helps transfer carbohydrates within the plant for grain production. MAX-IN Boron is a foliar nutrient that can help replenish boron levels in the leaves. It’s formulated with a patented adjuvant for maximum nutrient efficacy and is compatible with other crop protection products.
If you’re looking for a fertilizer that handles it all, MAX-IN Ultra ZMB® combines zinc, manganese, and boron into one convenient and effective foliar micronutrient product.? For more information about foliar nutrient products that can help optimize plant health, contact your local Trusted Advisor.
