Never have used starter fertilizer before. Farm mostly owned ground, but have picked up about 450 ac of rented ground for next year from a neighbor. Pulled soil samples, and the fertility isn't the best shape. Was wondering about putting a little bit of dry on, but then using a good starter fertilizer in the row to help give the corn what it needs to thrive. I do have both in furrow and 2x2 on my planter, just usually put 20 gal. of 28 and 6 gal ATS on 2x2 at planting and roll on, but with low p and k levels on these new farms, it has me wondering about trying a good starter.
