- Objective: The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness on overall yield of different products delivered via FurrowJet® application during planting.
- Average Return: In 2021, incorporating in-furrow fertilizer applications led to an average return of +8.6 Bu/A on yield and a +$30.11/A net return.
- Standout Products: When you look at the products that stood out higher than the average, companies like Nachurs, The Andersons, StollerUSA, and Marco stood out.
- FurrowJet firms the seed in the trench while placing bands of fertilizer on and near the seed, so early roots can access essential nutrients at the perfect time, ensuring that plants are never hungry.
Great Fertilizer + Great Precision Placement = Yield
We regularly test the effectiveness of various in-furrow starter fertilizers with FurrowJet®. A common question we get from FurrowJet users is, “What product should I use?” To help answer that question, we perform yearly studies at the PTI Farm to get data on a variety of products and their impact on overall yield and ROI.
We test these products so you can make an informed decision about the fertilizer you should consider utilizing during planting to increase yield.
FurrowJet not only firms the seed in the trench, but it also places bands of fertilizer on and near the seed. This three-band application helps early roots access essential nutrients at the perfect time in one application.
In 2021, our corn research showed an average ROI of $30.11/A and an average yield increase of 8.6 Bu/A looking at results from over 35 products. In 2022, we saw an average ROI of $23.17/A and an average yield increase of 6.8 Bu/A.
