Do micronutrients make fluid phosphorus perform better? locations
Aims

To compare performance and economics of correcting micronutrient deficiencies with fluid and granular fertilisers.

Key messages
  • Fluid fertilisers performed better (increased early growth and grain yield) with the addition of low rates of micronutrients.
  • Foliar micronutrients were more economic than granular.
