Soil sampling is a good start to any fertility program. Test results identify available nutrients in the soil, allowing you to address nutrient deficiencies and improve the nutritional profile of your fields!

For example, you may have one area that requires more lime than others. It does not make sense to put the same rate of product in both places, each with different needs. Proper nutrient management can help you budget in-field resources, optimizing your potential return on investment.

For more information, contact your local IAS location or agronomist.
