Growing up on a dairy farm in northwestern Wisconsin, strip-tiller Tryston Beyrer grew accustomed to dealing with cool, wet soil conditions. But these conditions tend to elicit the best responses from nutrient applications, even in situations where soil tests may not recommend additional fertilizer.
Having recently earned his PhD in crop physiology from the University of Illinois, worked under the tutelage of Dr. Fred Below, Tryston has studied phosphorus (P) and nitrogen (N) management, with an emphasis on the interactions between P placement, rate, source and timing in corn and soybeans within different tillage systems.
In today’s Strip-Till Farmer podcast brought to you by Topcon Agriculture, Tryston shares research results of comparative fertilizer trials to include banded vs. broadcast applications, analysis of proximity of fertilizer placement to a strip-till berm and its impact on yield and some simple, yet effective fertilization improvement strategies strip-tillers can consider to increase plant uptake.
