Boron is one of eight micronutrients that – when applied in the right proportions with macronutrients – becomes one of the most important crop nutrition factors to achieving higher yields. But because the line between boron toxicity and deficiency is narrower than with many other essential nutrients, some farmers are hesitant when it comes to applying boron on their crops.
Join Dr. Ross Bender, Senior Agronomist at The Mosaic Company, as he debunks some of the most common myths about boron and explains how new fertilizer technologies have improved boron management by providing improved nutrient distribution, season-long boron availability and a flexible application window.

Advancements in ag technology help us work smarter and faster – uncovering problems as they occur, finding solutions that minimize losses, and even predicting pressures before they hit. David Swain, sales director for Spensa Technologies, has managed ag technology and precision agriculture for various companies for more than 20 years. He will share how technology is currently impacting efficiencies in the field, and more importantly, the role data plays in creating information that can be used by retailers and farmers to manage pest pressures and protect yields. David will also introduce the opportunities for predictive technologies to demonstrate the value of ag retailers and return on investment of a strategic pest protection program.

Innovative nutrient sources and application technologies have accelerated our ability to precisely manage the primary macronutrients and in some cases, micronutrients as well. The often overlooked secondary macronutrients, magnesium (Mg), calcium (Ca), and sulfur (S), are less frequently considered, despite significant crop requirements across a range of species. In fact, substantial increases in crop yield and nutrient removal during the last 20 years, along with purer fertilizers and more rigorous air emissions standards, have collectively increased the prevalence of secondary macronutrient deficiency in field. Join Ross as he explores what every farmer, retailer, and agricultural professional needs to know about the forgotten few: magnesium, calcium, and sulfur.

Maximizing ROI in today’s low-margin market requires a crop fertility program that goes beyond traditional NPK applications. Managing for improved soil organic matter can pay dividends on the farm by improving nutrient efficiency and availability, as well as plant uptake, resiliency and yield. In this webinar, we will discuss the relationship between soil organic matter, soil microbes and plant nutrient uptake, and how fertilizers made with the newly released TerraNu Nutrient Technology™ can leverage all three of these components for improved crop performance.
