The drive for higher yields requires strategic use of nutrients. In 2022, Ganczar worked with his local Nutrien representative, Jules Catellier to incorporate ESN and had some “phenomenal results” on a silage corn strip trial in 2022. “The tools we have now to manage environmental conditions are better than ever,” says Ganczar.
Along with yield, there is a growing focus on farm stewardship. Catellier has noticed a shift in the way growers are using fertilizers. “The responsible use of fertilizer in the last 20-30 years has been top of mind. I am very proud to work for a company like Nutrien that has a product like ESN. The polymer coating and controlled nitrogen release can be used for all crops and applied as needed,” says Catellier.
The best growers know it isn’t just about a yield bump this season. “It’s not just the ROI. It’s the fact that this land is going to be left in better condition for the next generation,” says Ganczar.
