Nitrogen costs continue to rise as a variable input. As we learn more about how field inputs affect the environment, applying at the right time, using the right amount and right rate as directed by your fields’ specific soil sample analysis should be what guides your nitrogen application and management decisions.
This prescriptive approach to nitrogen nutrient application and management has equally important effects on the environment and your variable input costs. By developing and using nitrogen based on your soil quality needs, you can optimize your nitrogen efficiency, reduce its loss and maximize your profits long term by using a planned and strategic approach.
Top N Management Tips
- Apply nitrogen based on soil health and crop needs
- Time application appropriately to reduce denitrification, leaching and surface volatilization
- Use soil, environmental, weather and crop conditions to determine your ideal form of nitrogen application
- Restrict application to ideal conditions
