Seed-Placed Fertilizer Decision Aid

A commonly asked question is "How much fertilizer can I safely apply with the seed?"

FertSeedDecisionAid was developed to help answer that question in a reasonably condition-specific manner. This easy-to-use decision aid is based on regression coefficients (crop stand upon fertilizer rate) that were developed in a laboratory emergence study of common fertilizers and crops and verified with published field studies when they existed. It was developed by South Dakota State University with the support of IPNI.
