Making Phosphorous Management Work for You

2016 Soybean Summit - Effingham, Illinois
Dick Lyons, Illinois Council for Best Management Practices

Dick Lyons focuses on the idea that soybeans as well as corn and other commodity crops require the nutrient phosphorus for top yields. However, one recommendation does not fit all across Illinois.  Lyons discusses how your location within the state of IL, your present soil test numbers for phosphorus, your yields and your potential for loss of phosphorus to the waters of IL and others leaving IL impact your recommended production practices.
