Wheat, the keys to nutritional management

Wheat contributes to diversity, provides a uniform and durable coverage of residues, and improves the structure of soils from an exuberant and vigorous root system.

In addition, its winter growth subtracts water, nutrients and radiation from spring-summer weeds, which represent the group with the highest tolerance to the most frequently used herbicides.

What is the variable that most influences your performance? Useful water content at sowing. As growth occurs during the dry season, the crop depends on prior storage for its production.

Crop nutrition is another fundamental aspect. What nutrients?


It is the nutrient with the greatest impact on yield. Its function is related to the formation, expansion and duration of the leaf area.

What is the most suitable fertilization technology?

Given the low winter rainfall, it is key to choose the time, source and location.

The incorporation in presowing or together with the seed avoids losses due to volatilization or interception by the residues.

What amount of N is the best for my crop?

To calculate the dose it is necessary to take into account these 3 factors:

#1 The initial level of nitrate in the soil.

#2 The mineralization potential of organic matter.

#3 Target performance.


This nutrient is related to early biomass accumulation, resource capture, cold tolerance and water stress.

It does not mobilize in the soil solution.

What is the optimal moment of application and in what dose?

Localized applications at the time of planting improve its use.

The most appropriate fertilization criterion is replacement, that is, a dose based on the phosphorus extracted by the previous crop.


Its incorporation is not decisive and can be applied between sowing and the end of tillering.

Fertilizers composed of S linked to calcium (Ca) benefit the health of the soil, since they generate less acidification and improve the structure.


It is the most important microelement.

What is your application form?

# Built-in fertilization

# Seed treatment

Great efficiency of use, allows to supply the crop from sowing. As a disadvantage, it does not leave residual Zn for the following crops.

# Foliar fertilization

It allows applying higher doses of the nutrient, although the crop goes through the first stages without using fertilization.

To achieve better nutrition we recommend FACYT ZINC START FERTILIZER. This product provides an essential micronutrient for vegetables and necessary for cultivation from the first moments of development.

The COMPLETE FACYT fertilizer is made up of small crystals that provide macro and micronutrients that are easily absorbed by the plant’s tissues. Foliar applications benefit the crop in periods of greatest nutritional demand, leaving its nutrients readily available to the plant, especially in situations of environmental stress.

Also the FACYT IMPUSO motivating fertilizer is a great option. Provides balanced nutrients such as Calcium and Nitrogen, necessary for strengthening the cell wall and protein synthesis. Potassium (K) is of great importance for plant metabolism and is involved in the synthesis of numerous enzymes.
