Managing Crop Nutrition During Reproductive Periods

At AEA, we recognize that many crops have the genetic potential to produce far greater yields than are routinely harvested. A critical limiting factor that often contributes to decreased yields is insufficient support of the plant’s reproductive functioning.

Two reproductive processes are key to bigger yields — bud initiation and pollination. In addition, plants need enough of the right nutrients to keep from aborting the increased fruit set. We often see plants dropping as much as 75% of their blossoms and immature fruit. We observe this so often that we begin to accept it as a set of normal circumstances, but it can be prevented.

In this webinar, John describes how blossoming, pollination and fruit development in plants can be likened to the human female reproductive processes and which minerals provide the hormonal and nutritional support needed to build a crop. Find the complete webinar here: https://youtu.be/Z897hIrKZ8w

Managing Crop Nutrition During Reproductive Periods

  2. 2. We believe yield loss can be greatly reduced by managing nutrition at critical points of influence.
  3. 3. Crops have significant untapped genetic potential
  4. 4. Why does the yield potential remain unrealized?
  5. 5. Plants often abort a large percentage of blossoms and small fruit.
  6. 6. Actual yields are determined by nutritional integrity at critical points of influence, particularly when plants shift from vegetative dominance to reproductive dominance.
  7. 7. Critical Points of Influence
  8. 8. For many crops there are 5 Critical Points of Influence, which are connected with both vegetative and reproductive growth stages. 1. Germination 2. Reproductive Bud Initiation 3. Blossoming and Pollination 4. Fruit Fill 5. Senescence Two important CPIs are bud initiation and pollination.
  9. 9. What nutrients are required for reproductive bud initiation? manganese zinc boron calcium phosphorus seaweed
  10. 10. What nutrients are required for strong pollination? manganese zinc boron calcium phosphorus seaweed copper
  11. 11. Plants synthesize all the hormones they require when supported with the right nutrition.
  12. 12. Application timing is critical.
  13. 13. Accelerate is designed to provide nutritional support at these critical CPIs.
