Thanks to better genetics and improved management practices, growers are enjoying consistently higher yields. But what may seem like cause for celebration could actually provide growers with reason for concern. Though higher yields demand increased nutrient replacement, many growers are still relying on traditional fertilization strategies. The result? An alarming decline in soil potassium levels — and a serious threat to Midwestern growers’ future yields.

High yields today could bring high-risk tomorrow.

Potassium removal has been consistently outpacing replenishment, presenting growers with significant long-term risks.
