Jay Debertin: Update to CHS owners

Dear CHS owners:

Corn and soybean harvest is well underway, and it’s been a good fall. We’re glad to see that progress, although this week’s weather has forced a pause in many areas. We hope you are enjoying a safe, productive season and look forward to speaking with you at the virtual 2020 CHS Annual Meeting on Dec. 3.

Thank you for your business. Please let us know how we can help you complete this season and move into 2021.

Freeing phosphorus: New ways to add crop nutrient availability

An innovative option makes broadcast crop nutrient applications more available.

Farmers wouldn’t be satisfied with just 20 percent weed control from a herbicide application, but that’s typically the best nutrient availability they can expect from dry phosphate fertilizer applications.

“Under the best soil conditions, only one-fifth of applied phosphorus may be available to the crop throughout the season,” says Steve Carlsen, Levesol and crop enhancement manager, CHS Agronomy. “Availability is even less when soil pH levels are too high or too low or in soils that contain too little organic matter.”
