THE GREATEST BATTLE IN AG HISTORY

THE TAURUS AG DISCOVERY PLOT CHALLENGE

LOWER SEEDLING MORTALITY, HIGHER FERTILIZER RATES, INCREASED EMERGENCE

Seedling mortality rate is often caused by salt in fertilizer and toxicity to seed.  We know higher fertilizer rates are applied to increase yield, but we also know this practice sacrifices emergence. Our seed safety knock-out challenges the accepted seedling mortality rate to show it is possible to increase fertilizer, and increase emergence with seed safe products.

WEIGH-INS

On our Discovery Plots, we applied out-of-this-world quantities, to showcase how seed safe innovations can decrease seed mortality and improve soil biology.
