What are the best micronutrients to put in furrow on corn for best ROI?
****- Chelated Zinc
Great question. The starter I use has copper, iron and zinc added, but my corn tissue samples in '19 showed a deficiency of iron, so I am t...More
Anyone done any boron at plant? I’m playing around with banding some this year but that is pricey too.
Be careful with boron because it can be toxic.
I was maybe going to run it in a 0x2. Ive heard in furrow would be a bad idea
I run a qt of Borosol 10% from nutrien, it's about $4/qt. Run it in my 2x2 and definitely not in furrow
I’ve tried Boron in my 2x2 starter. I think that’s too early for a one and done application as tissue tests came back as deficient later on ...More
How much boron did you do?
I used about .28 lbs of B. Or 1 qt/ac of a 10% boron product. I’m thinking about increasing that to .4 lbs split over 2 applications in 2020...More
If you go with chelated boiron you can use it as a foliar best bang for your buck
I though that boron was only taken in at the root tip.
I put one gallon per ac on 2x2 and did not see any difference in tissue test or yield. I think it was to early and we had to wet of a spring...More
From my experience Zinc is most common micro in a starter. As mentioned, Boron can cause toxicity so I'd prefer having it broadcasted based ...More
2x2 has worked well 2x2 but is a pain hauling that much liquid with 28. I have used a blend with 4% sulfur and when neighbors corn shows sig...More
We use 7 gal of 32 and 3 gal of thiosul out the back on the ground. Works really well in our sandy soils and gives plant a little boost.
9 gallon of 28% + 6 gallon of thio. Has been my best RIO. To date.
Not totally tubular bus similar just dribbled out the back. This acts similar to a nitrogen stabilizer
We are using micro pkg 1qt and a triple zinc 1 qt and two gal. 10-34-0 and 1.5 gal water .. Total 4.5 gal. product in furrow . works well ....More

6-24-6 @ 5gal/ac, Sulfur 1 gal, Zn 1 Qt , All in furrow
Wilbur Ellis has Blue Zone ultra it's a 6-24-6 with Sulfur, Zinc, Copper, Manganese etc for about $5/gal we run 3 gal in lighter soils in fu...More
10-34-0 is higher in salt content and in sandy or drier soils it can burn and you get no K or micros with it
a trace pac of all the 17 micro essential nutrients spiked with some additional based on soil samples, boron comes at such a low rate in the...More
I start with a soil test first. If you get a micro pack you could be adding something that could hurt your yield. I have found when I y-drop...More
