Plants require 14 essential nutrients for healthy growth. The absence of any one nutrient in the soil can limit plant growth, even when all other plant nutrients are present in adequate amounts. The three macronutrients that are essential for food production and quality are nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium.
Fertilizer placement in relation to the seed is the key to successful plant growth. Proper placement maximizes plant usage and minimizes fertilizer runoff and waste.
Our side placement fertilizer systems are compact, lightweight, and place liquid behind the planter. The popular G2 fits most planters, and we have side placement liquid fertilizer tubes for Case IH planters.
