Nutrient Stratification — You Have It, Here’s How You Remedy It

The smarter we get the more we realize we don’t know, or at least, didn’t know. So it goes with nutrient stratification in your fields. The traditional (easy) answer has been to throw more fertility at the problem, but as XA's Kelly Garrett says, “I believe we often times have more than adequate fertility, it’s just not where it needs to be or readily available.” And that pretty much sums up the stratification problem — your top few inches of soil are ripe with fertility, but the water and uptake roots are deeper where there’s a nutrient void. Shaun Guthmiller with Concept Agritek explains how to diagnose and remedy nutrient stratification.
