Feeding the fields

Today we applied phosphorus to our fields.  Phosphorus (P) is very important for good root development.  Phosphorus moves slowly in soil under most conditions; therefore, applying fertilizers during this time allows the P to move into the soil through winter freeze/thaw processes and rain/snowmelt where it can be taken up by the fine branch roots near the soil surface.

Applying the proper amount of fertilizer at the appropriate time strengthens the plants making them more resistant to drought and able to grow to their potential.
