I came across something that fascinated me in an ag publication. It is a technology that delivers very specific amounts and types of fertilizers to seeds, right in the furrow. Following up I found that The Leaders of In-Furrow Technology say that In the area of plant nutrition, there have been recent developments with fertilizers possessing new or different combinations of plant food analyses with advancements in the science of formulating fertilizers. Many opportunities still exist in providing the right amount of the right nutrients at the right place and time. Modern liquid formulations are more easily and conveniently metered and are also capable of being placed in the furrow with the seed. From a Liquid Systems video, here is Peter Burgess CEO and Design Engineer, of Liquid Systems. “We take this very very seriously. If you want to put liquid out at a rate, it has to be done correctly. Unless you can apply liquids positively, correctly, accurately, you are just wasting your time. That was the in for me was to produce equipment that is capable of doing this.” This nutrient application technology has opened the door for the ultimate in early seedling access to important nutrients.
