The Agronomists, Ep 157: Feeding corn in-season with Dale Cowan and Colin Elgie


In an ideal growing season, corn goes in to fit soil, with a strong starter fertilizer package, and a plan for a top-dress pass.

In reality, the ’24 season in Ontario has started out as anything but ideal. A very early warm up has led to well advanced weeds, smeared in corn, and excessive water, to the point where many acres are still not planted. There are also acres that are well advanced and already at top-dress timing.

What does a fertility management plan look like in such a challenging year? How do we estimate losses in wet conditions? How do slow-release or loss-protection products play a role? For those answers and more, host Lyndsey Smith is joined by Dale Cowan of AGRIS Co-op, and Colin Elgie with the Ontario Ministry of Farming, Agriculture and Agribusiness.
