In a recent update to the industry’s only nutrient balance analysis, Dr. Mullen reveals that over the last 40-plus years, nutrient removal trends have outpaced consumption across much of the country. As a result, many key growing states now face a K and P balance trend deficit. The record yields many growers have recently enjoyed may make the warning signs appear less urgent.
