Ideal Starter Fertilizer Placement
- Phosphorus starters are immobile in the soil
- Move some fall applied P to planter applied P and gain efficiency
- FurrowJet places starter where seedling and crown roots can access it
Phosphorus Doesn't Move
Phosphorus fertilizer does not move in the soil, which means that it needs to be placed where a plant will be able to access it. Broadcasting the immobile nutrient across the entire field doesn't make sense, because it won't move to the rows where the plants are.
