Pioneer remains committed to providing growers with educational opportunities that equip them with crop management insights to guide data-driven decisions. The Pioneer agronomy team continues its free Forward-thinking Farming webinar series on March 5. The hourlong presentation focuses on how farmers can improve nutrient uptake in corn. The webinar is open to the public and farmers need not be Pioneer customers to find the content valuable.
Date: March 5, 2021
Time: 7:30 - 8:30 a.m. CT
Topic: Feeding Your Field ‒ Nutrient Uptake for Corn Production
Dr. Stephen Strachan will speak on how essential nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium are only valuable if they successfully travel from the soil to the corn roots and how you as a farmer can improve nutrient uptake efficiency overall.
This webinar will cover:
- The role of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium from the perspective of a corn plant
- How nutrients are stored in the soil and extracted by the corn root
- Facts about soil chemistry and plant physiology
- Opportunities for farmers to increase corn yields through nutrient management
