Applying fertilizers pre-plant and at-planting are beneficial practices to restore soil fertility and grow a successful crop. Pre-plant fertilizers are applied before planting seeds or seedlings into the field or into nursery potting media. At-planting fertilizers are applied during planting. These practices provide ready access to nutrients that are vital for seedling establishment and health. Proper fertilizer choice and placement are essential for maximizing the benefits of pre- and at- planting fertilizers
