About Crop Quality & Yield

There are many factors that go into crop quality, health, and yield. The important characteristics to continuously check for include fruit or vegetable firmness, size, and increased yield. Although these visual symptoms may indicate a quality or yield issue in your field, it is important that a proper diagnosis takes place for successful problem correction.  A normal reaction for most people would be to lay out more nitrogen as it is a main component of every cell in a plant or crop. Nitrogen is also plant-available and leads to immediate results in plant quality and yield. However, as an increased amount of nitrogen is applied to the soil, the amount of nutrients a plant or crop is able to absorb reduces. Although large amounts of nitrogen applied to the crops’ soil is not necessarily harmful, a proper carbon to nitrogen ratio balance helps plants absorb nutrients more efficiently, which directly results in a reduced application rate of fertilizer.
