Dr. Steve's Agronomic Tip of the Week: The Right Placement

In this podcast episode (part 3 of 4 on the 4R Nutrient Stewardship topic), Dr. Steve Petrie discusses the third “R” of the 4 R’s in Nutrient Stewardship: the right placement of nutrients.

Soil environment in which the crop is growing and the crop itself need to be taken into consideration when determining the best placement of fertilizer.
