Back 2 Basics Video Series

4 Seasons

We know we can’t focus on the end of season and not give attention to the beginning; and that starts with a crop fertility plan based on a complete soil analysis.

Not that long ago, fertilizer management only focused on N-P-K. As yields climb, we know that we are having to increase the productivity of N, P and K through the supporting roles of secondary and micronutrients, such as sulfur and zinc all the way through molybdenum. But which ones? And how do we decide which of those pricey nutrients will be worthwhile? Spending on extra nitrogen and potassium may feel like the right choice, but what if copper holds back the yield of your wheat crop and the result is, the 50 pounds of nitrogen you applied isn’t productive because it wasn’t supported by $5 worth of copper?

The Back-to-Basics video series is intended to take an in-depth look at the nutrients that may make a difference in your crop. We’ll go in the order that we at AgroLiquid look at a soil test analysis and help you understand the role each nutrient plays in the plant, how it interacts with other nutrients in the soil, watch-outs and more. Each video is between three and six minutes long, and focuses on a specific category on a soil test analysis.

  • Tissue Sampling | AgroLiquid B2B

    Episode 10

    Tissue sampling can be a powerful diagnostic tool. Pulling samples on a regular basis can help you stay ahead of potential issues that have yet to visually reveal themselves. It may also allow the opportunity to take corrective action in a timely manner. But, this tool must be handled properly.


  • Deficiency or Something Else | AgroLiquid B2B

    Episode 9

    Your crops are at the mercy of Mother Nature. As the season progresses, environmental conditions can stress your plants in various ways. Determining the proper response to these stresses in-season can be a challenge.

    In this Back 2 Basics video, Brad and Ryan discuss weather and environmental is...

  • Fertilizer-Placement | AgroLiquid B2B

    Episode 8

    Two of the most important considerations when it comes to applying fertilizer are placement and timing.

    For crops to reach their full potential, plant nutrition needs to have efficiency and maximum availability, regardless of how or when it is applied.

    This Back 2 Basics video takes a closer l...

  • Micronutrient Deficiencies B, Cu and Mo | AgroLiquid B2B

    Episode 7

    When plants come up short in micros like B, Cu or Mo, it can have negative effects in numerous processes within the plant - as well as an impact on harvest. But what are those processes? What does it looks like? And, most important, what can we do about it?

    In this Back 2 Basics video, Brad and ...

  • Micronutrient Deficiencies Zn, Mn, and Fe | AgroLiquid B2B

    Episode 6

    Micronutrients may not be needed in large quantities to achieve optimal plant health, however, they cannot be overlooked if you are looking to maximize yields. Deficiencies of micronutrients like zinc, manganese and iron can significantly effect plant development throughout the season - and yield...

  • Secondary Nutrients | AgroLiquid B2B

    Episode 5

    While primary nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium are widely recognized as essential for plant growth, the secondary nutrients, calcium, magnesium and sulfur, are equally important. Unfortunately, secondary nutrient deficiencies can be difficult to identify and manage. But, we're...

  • Potassium Deficiencies | AgroLiquid B2B

    Episode 4

    Potassium is a critical nutrient for plant growth, playing a key role in photosynthesis, water uptake and overall plant health. Insufficient levels of this nutrient can have serious consequences for the health of your crop.

    In this Back 2 Basics video, Brad and Ryan discuss potassium management ...

  • Phosphorus Deficiencies | AgroLiquid B2B

    Episode 3

    Phosphorus is a vital nutrient for plant growth and development and is a key component of DNA and cell membranes. Every farmer should follow best practices with this primary nutrient to prevent deficiencies throughout the season.

    In this Back 2 Basics video, Brad and Ryan discuss phosphorus bes...

  • Nitrogen Deficiencies | AgroLiquid B2B

    Episode 2

    Nitrogen is one of the most important nutrients for plant growth and is essential for crop yield and quality. Making sure your crops never run short makes all the difference come harvest.

    In this Back 2 Basics video, Brad and Ryan discuss nitrogen management and deficiency watch-outs. Join the c...

  • Fertilizer Math | AgroLiquid B2B

    Episode 1

    Look at any bag, jug, or fertilizer label, and you will see three numbers separated by hyphens; these numbers represent nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium content. This seems pretty straightforward, but how do you calculate how many actual pounds of nutrient is applied, and how does that calcula...
