Fluid Journal : Spring 2015
Dr. Easterwood is Director of Agronomic Services at Yara North America, Inc. in Tampa, Florida. against drought-induced oxidative stress • With calcium, water content of stressed cells is maintained • Calcium improves water uptake and transport to the shoot • Calcium reduces transpiration losses. Given the challenge of water scarcity, we must use all of our tools to address the challenge. A crop with good drought stress management will produce greater harvest per given amount of water, resulting in higher WUE or, in European terminology, “most crop per drop.” Calcium fertilization is one of our important available tools. The Fluid Journal, flagship publication of the Fluid Fertilizer Foundation (FFF), makes nearly two decades of archives available on its web site. The magazine investigates and informs its readers on innovative uses of fluid fertilizers under varied cultural, pest control, and water management practices, focusing on evaluating: the agronomics of fluid fertilizer in the production of maximum economic crop yields application techniques for fluid fertilizers the efficiencies and conveniences of fluid fertilizer systems methods of controlling environmental problems with fluids. Going on Twenty-Two Years of Archives! Since its formation, the FFF has funded over $3 million in fluid fertilizer research and accumulated thousands of pages of research data. The main goal of the Fluid Journal is to transfer this technical information into easy-to-read form to its farmers and dealers. The Fluid Journal also provides links to its articles on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/fluidjournal For information on how to become a member of the FFF, contact the foundation’s office at 785/776-0273 or the foundation’s website: http://www.fluidfertilizer.com
