Growers today have more options than ever before to secure needed crop inputs for the upcoming growing season. With current margins thinner than ever before, a crop input supplier must find a way to differentiate themselves on something other than price. Growers make many agronomic decisions throughout the year that will impact overall field or farm profitability, and most growers struggle to quantify impacts of these decisions.
This presentation will demonstrate how agronomic decisions impact the ROI of a field by using the data the growers collect today. How different is the conversation with the grower when you can show them ROI of your products instead of the price of your products? Let’s talk ROI instead of bags, gallons and tons!

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.
