What are you guys doing for liquid fertilizer rates directly in the trench for soybeans?
Im a first generation farmer with an old 7100 jd planter with liquid fertilizer going directly in the trench it’s not set up with 2by2 or anything like that.. I ran 3 gallons of 3-18-18 and 5 gallons of water this last spring for a total of 8gallons per acre so I had a steady flow throughout the trench. Now my question, is 3 gallons of product to much for the seed? Is 5 gallons of water just ruining and diluting the product? Thanks everyone!
Use a low salt starter, I use 2 gallons 2 15 19 but not directly on seed, use a splitter on your seed firmer
I will for sure give you a shout! Thanks I appreciate that!

You are what I would call in the safe zone because soybeans are very sensitive like ***** said. I was a coop salesman for 10 years so spent ...More
So are you saying that liquid fertilizer in the trench is pointless and a waste of money? Will I see a yield difference?
It's a salt issue on newly germinating seed. Look for low salt starters if you want to take the fert rate higher. Label should have max reco...More
