Filling in the Blanks of Your Crop’s Nutritional Needs

Filling in the Blanks of Your Crop’s Nutritional Needs

With your Southeast Regional Ag News, I am Haylie Shipp. This is the Ag Information Network.

Today we’re talking with Eddie Miller, Branch Manager with Helena Agri-Enterprises LLC. Eddie and I had a chance to sit down earlier this week and address the nutrition needs that your crop could be facing…

“I think the best way to do this is to use a tissue sample. I encourage my growers to start a sampling program early in the season and sample every two weeks during the critical growth stages.”

Another thing he says to consider is the application timeline…

“Most growers are not going to go out and make a separate application for foliar nutrition alone, so products have to have certain qualities. They have to be safe to the crop. They have to be compatible with other fungicides and insecticides. And they have to be readily available plant nutrients.”

Eddie says that he likes to utilize a foliar program in combination with a conventional fertilizer program…

“It takes both of them to make a great crop. And one of the products I’d use is Coron Metra 10. It provides a slow-release nitrogen while also additional potash. My goal is to help the customer maintain proper nutrition levels and never let that plant become deficient. It’s certainly easier to be proactive rather than reactive to a deficiency.”

You can visit to find your local Helena retailer to learn more about Coron Metra 10 and for help creating your in-season nutritional plan.
