Neal Kinsey: Fertility Problems Caused by Rain

Neal Kinsey

Whether crops are suffering under drought or struggling through a too-wet season, a well-managed fertility program provides a great deal of resiliency. Beyond that, rain affects availability of applied materials. Rain can leach out boron and sulfur and release time-released nitrogen too rapidly. Even years in drought can be better or worse depending on soil fertility and fertilizers utilized. Learn from real-world examples steps that can be taken to mitigate the effects of what seem to be increasingly erratic rainfall patterns.

Neal Kinsey has been called a “consultant’s consultant.” Through his in-depth courses, he has trained hundreds of consultants and sophisticated growers in the methodology of soil element balancing utilizing cation exchange capacity. He specializes in building and maintaining soil for quality crop production. In addition to consulting on standard crops such as corn, cotton, soybeans, rice, wheat and grain sorghum, he has done soil work for such specialties as coffee, alfalfa, pastures, clovers, oats, melons, almonds and avocados. He is coauthor of the book Hands-On Agronomy and lectures frequently around the world.
