Members of the ETS team are frequent guests on the Ag Ph. D. Radio show. The following episode is related to the topic of Iron.
Iron is a nutrient that can easily be affected based on tillage of the soil. If a soil is deficient in iron the soil cannot uptake water as well. Eric Moore says that strip-till is a great way to improve iron availability even if additional iron is not being applied because of the aeration added to the soil. Soil samples are important to know how to properly manage a soil zone. Be sure to listen as Eric also talks about tillage depths and how they affect nutrient placement.
