Plants require a total of 16 nutrients to grow, develop, reproduce and remain healthy. Three of these nutrients – nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) – are required in relatively large amounts. These are known as macronutrients.
Seed-applied fertilizer dressing
In-furrow applied fertilizer and additives
Foliar applied liquid solutions/suspensions of fertilizer (macro-, secondary- and micronutrients)

I had about 3 acres worth of C3 left over from a pea field, so we sprayed it onto the barley until the tank was empty. This is a new field I rented that is sandy loam with a history of poor fertility.
I first used C3 in 2012 when I had a silage corn field turning orange due to excess moisture. My Richardson Pioneer rep said to use C3 when I sprayed the glyphosate on it. Turned out the best corn I ever grew. I have been using it every year on our land since; it works.
I could never grow corn like this without C3. I do have an agronomy background so I know how important nutrition is ... especially at the 4 to 6 leaf stage.
