Abiotic stress reduces yield and quality. Biotic stress is always preceded by abiotic stress factors.
Root system function is compromised by inadequate availability of phosphorus, calcium, and soluble carbon due to chemical tie-up in the soil.
A healthy soil supports optimum soil biology and plant growth. Imbalances in soil chemistry, soil biology, or plant physiology lead to reduced soil health.
Maximizing yield per acre and optimizing crop quality while satisfying budgetary constraints is essential for long term profitability.
