Growing with AGGRAND

 

Corn

Corn is a heavy feeder and requires large amounts of nutrients, especially nitrogen and phosphorus. Nitrogen is usually the limiting factor in corn production throughout the season while phosphorus and potassium are important during early plant growth and development when soil conditions limit uptake. Corn responds best to AGGRAND fertilizers when they are applied in banded applications at planting and as foliar applications after emergence.

Per-acre mix ratio:

 

2 gallons AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer and 50 gallons of water at planting. The addition of 1 gallon AGGRAND Natural Liquid Bonemeal may be beneficial, especially when soil phosphorus levels are below 30 ppm.

 

Foliar Applications

 

Per-acre mix ratio:

 

1 gallon AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer and 30 gallons of water. Apply as a fine mist with enough solution to thoroughly cover leaves. Increase spray volume as crop develops to ensure thorough coverage. Perform first application when plants are 4-6” tall.

 

Repeat when plants are 18-24” tall. Increase the application rate if leaves are chlorotic. A third application could be performed when a few tassels are just starting to show, but this application can only be applied by aircraft, a high-boy or through an irrigation system. Another option is to apply AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer when plants are 4-6” tall, 10-12” tall and before the crop is too tall to enter the field (18-24”). Space the applications at least 10 days apart.

 

Rates vary according to soil fertility, cropping history and other inputs that are available. Lower dilution rates are more effective than higher dilution rates. Two or three lighter applications may be more effective than one heavy application. If other constraints only allow one trip over the field, do not exceed 4 percent dilution rate (4 gallons AGGRAND Fetilizer to 96 gallons of water).

 

To reduce susceptibility to attack of insects and disease-causing organisms, apply a per-acre mixture of 1 gallon of AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer and 25 gallons of water when signs of infestation become apparent.

 

Soil Applications

 

Per-acre mix ratio:

 

Mix 3 gallons of AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer in 75-100 gallons of water. Apply the solution to one acre (apply spring and fall if soil is hard and low in organic matter).
