    NutrientStar conducted 61 trials over 3 years evaluating Adapt-N and 21 trials over 2 years evaluating FieldView in Ohio. A summary of findings is presented below.

    Tissue analysis can play an important role in determining if corn and soybean are getting adequate nutrition. Tissue samples can be pulled at various stages of development, but one of the most common times is when crops enter the reproductive stages (R1). Prior to R1, corn and soybean are in a rapid growth phase with very high nutrient uptake over several weeks. Sampling at R1 allows us to determine if their nutrient needs are being met, or if a particular nutrient is deficient. But how important is it that the tissue sampling happen right at flowering?

    Ohio is now seeing full implementation of Ohio’s Agricultural Fertilizer Applicator Certification regulation. The regulation was result of Senate Bill 150, which can be found at http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/905.322 and http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/905.321. The 2014 regulation required farmers to complete a fertilizer certification program if they applied fertilizer to more than 50 acres of land in agricultural production primarily for sale.
