Given our current economics, should I consider applying my Phosphorus and Potassium every year, versus a two year spread for a corn/soybean rotation?

I'm looking for specific examples of current economics.

I was thinking about flying on cereal rye this year into corn. Any recommendations on timing and rate?  This is my first year doing this but I did get a contract with the NRCS.

I snapped this photo in one of my later planted fields.  I can't tell whether this is sulfur or zinc deficiency.  Can anyone tell?  Also, is it worth doing a tissue test?
