Phosphorus (P) is essential for crop growth. No other nutrient can be substituted for it. The plant must have P to complete its normal production cycle. It is one of the three major nutrients: the other two are nitrogen (N) and potassium (K).
Potassium (K) has a great impact on crop quality, including increased kernel weight and kernels per ear in corn, and improved oil and protein content in soybeans. Potassium is vital to photosynthesis. Sufficient levels of potassium also improves plant health, stalk strength and tolerance to drought stress.

Aglime is crushed limestone used for soil treatment, primarily to reduce soil acidity. Using aglime to change the soil from acidic to nearly neutral benefits crops by maximizing availability of plant nutrients. When soils are very acidic, over half of the applied nutrients can be tied up in the soil and not available to the plant. The optimum range of pH for corn is 5.5 to 7.5, and for soybeans; 5.0 to 8.0 .
Micro nutrients are
essential plant mineral nutrients taken up and utilized by crops in very small quantities.
Traditionally, we have relied on what was present naturally in the soil together with amounts added as impurities in fertilizers and pesticides as the source of micro nutrients for crop growth. Now deficiencies of micro nutrients have been diagnosed more frequently; and many farmers are beginning to take a look at their general availability.
Bollmeyer Inc. has cutting technology and equipment that has allowed us to stay competitive in the industry. Our 4 box Ziegler Terragators are being utilized to spread not only fertilizer but micro nutrients as well.
