In order to intensify every acre for maximum food production in a growing world, additional farm inputs could be a beneficial option for increasing grain yield. For this study, two corn hybrids and two soybean varieties were grown in three plot locations throughout Wisconsin. The common management plots with traditional practices were compared to advanced management plots which received additional herbicide, fungicide, and foliar micronutrient applications with tissue sample analysis. Both agronomic yield and economical profitability were then analyzed between the two management practices.
