Precision Nitrogen Management to Maximize Recoverable Sugar per Acre

Nitrogen applied with Variable Rate Technology (VRT) and starter fertilizer use show the greatest benefits, along with overall nutrient management throughout the rotation. Correct timing of nutrient applications and their amounts is critical to optimize sugarbeet yield and quality. Based on university research, Versalime also has nutrient benefits for sugarbeet production and yield.
