Wheat

OVERVIEW

Wheat has a critical need for phosphorus and potassium from germination through reproductive stages, where maximum yield potential is determined.  The NACHURS Advantage ensures that the wheat plant has adequate available phosphorus and potassium when the plant needs it most for maximum yield potential. 

Give your wheat plant a strong and uniform emergence with NACHURS seed-placed starter. When used as a foliar fertilizer, and applied to the plant foliage, the nutrients are absorbed quickly throughout the plant for healthier wheat to maximize yields.  NACHURS liquid fertilizers can also be tank-mixed with most post-spray applications to save wheat growers time and money!


NACHURS High Yield Product Recommendations



Preplant -
If applying dry broadcast fertilizer as part of your traditional fertilizer program YaraVita® Procote® oil-based suspension fertilizer coatings are an excellent way to apply micronutrients to the soil. YaraVita® Procote® is a unique way to ensure even distribution of micronutrients on growing crops. Fertilizer blenders will find YaraVita® Procote® easy to use due to its benefits of significantly reduced dust and nutrient losses. YaraVita® Procote® ensures even micronutrient supply with each fertilizer granule which enhances micronutrient efficiency, crop yield and quality.  

  • Available products: YaraVita® Procote® Zn or YaraVita® Procote® BMZ


In-furrow Band - Numerous university trials find greatest efficiency and yields from seed-applied wheat fertilization. Placing fertilizer in a band with the seed increases seedling uptake and limits P interaction with cations in the soils. Banding high quality, low salt fertilizer with the seed improves seedling vigor and enhances tillering.

  • Available products: Rhyzo-Link® 9-15-3, Rhyzo-Link® 3-10-13, NACHURS imPulse®, NACHURS Triple Option®. NACHURS 100% EDTA Micronutrients may be added to any formulation.


Foliar -
Wheat has great potential to benefit from foliar feeding. Studies indicate positive response to foliar feeding at various stages of wheat growth. Foliar fertilizer applications may be applied in combination with crop protection products, when growers are already making trips over the field.

For all foliar applications (always perform compatibility test prior to application):

  • Available products:

    These products may only be applied with water or combined with crop protection chemicals: Rhyzo-Link® 9-15-3, Rhyzo-Link® 3-10-13, NACHURS imPulse®, NACHURS Triple Option®.

    These products may be combined with UAN (in the proper ratio): NACHURS Finish Line®, NACHURS SRN®, NACHURS N-Rage Max®, NACHURS K-flex™ (0-0-19-6), NACHURS K-fuel® (0-0-24), Rhyzo-Link® 0-0-15.

    NACHURS 100% EDTA Micronutrients may be added to any formulation.

Early-Season Foliar Feeding
– Foliar fertilization results in rapid nutrient absorption and utilization. It corrects deficiencies or prevents nutrient shortages during critical periods of growth, thereby maximizing winter hardiness, tillering and yield. This application is especially critical if in-furrow fertilization was not applied, fertilizer may be applied with herbicide or insecticide applications.

Mid-Season Foliar – Applications at this time have been especially effective for both grain and forage production. Providing wheat with nutrients when it is breaking dormancy is an excellent way to increase yields. It is at this time that many producers are applying additional nitrogen to the growing crop – careful selection of nutrients may be applied simultaneously with UAN (see product reference sheets for additional information).

Late-Season Foliar – Applications at this time have the potential to increase yields and to improve test weight of the grain. Often they are applied simultaneously with fungicide applications.


With Irrigation
- Incorporating fertilizer into water will provide the most efficient use of available resources. NACHURS Aqua-Tech® technology prevents cations from binding to phosphate, resulting in the reduction of occurrences of emitter plugging, scale build-up and the increase in plant nutrient uptake. Even as the fertilizer solution enters the root zone the polyamine technology continues to offer protection from phosphorus tie-up. Bio-K® is the source for potassium in this product line. Bio-K® has organic acid origins, resulting in highly efficient, extremely low salt, and very soluble potassium fertilization.

  • Available products: Aqua-Tech® 7-20-4, Aqua-Tech® 2-0-20-8S-0.2B-0.4Zn, NACHURS K-flex™ (0-0-19-6) and NACHURS K-fuel® (0-0-24).
