Both liquid and granular fertilizers containing nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium were applied directly in the seed zone of soybeans (Glycine max (L.) Merrill) at planting. An application of 35.5 liters/ha (3.8 gallons/acre) of a liquid 5.0-8.8-4.2 (N-P-K) “popup” fertilizer reduced stands by 57.8% and yields by 20.3%. Plant stands were reduced when only 11.2 kg/ha (10 lb/acre) of a granular 10-15-5 (N-P-K) “popup” fertilizer was applied in the seed zone at planting.
