Does it save nutriants for next years crop?
Thinking about it but I don't want the soil to erode either.
I have a lot of acres of corn that are brown with no ears.
Never have had to think about this before in my 38 years of farming.
There is a lot of P&K in those corn stalks, so yes it does save nutrients for next years crop.
If you put any P&K on the ground this year a lot of it will still be in the ground because the corn plant did not use it. This post was edited by davemk at 13:53:10 07/21/12.
