Trace elements banded as fluids at seeding to cereal crops are effective locations
Aims

To explore the effectiveness of trace elements when applied with fluid nitrogen and phosphorus fertiliser.

Key messages
  • Fluid trace elements banded under the seed row is an effective system for delivering these nutrients to cereal crops.
  • Rates of trace element application as banded fluids may be lower than for other seeding strategies and cheap sulphates can be used
  • Mixes of trace elements as banded fluids are effective.
  • Trial was not trace element deficient.
