Nitrogen management is essential to prevent nutrient loss, maximize yield potential and optimize economic return — it’s especially important when your nitrogen program includes a fall application.
While growers are familiar with the unpredictability of the weather, the varying impacts of weather systems in the fall and winter can mean leaving input investments to even more chance.
Do you plan to pull soil samples this fall? Learn why soil samples are valuable and why now is a great time to determine a method of sampling.
DCD or dicyandiamide is the active ingredient found in many fertilizers and additives marketed for their nitrification inhibition properties, including SUPERU fertilizer. SUPERU is a finished fertilizer with 8,500 ppm DCD that is backed by more than 30 years of research and hundreds of trials.
If the 2019 season taught us anything, it’s that things don’t always go according to plan. But that doesn’t mean looking ahead is a fruitless practice. With that in mind, have you started thinking about your 2020 nitrogen plan? A strategically planned anhydrous ammonia application can deliver significant agronomic and operational benefits. But how can you be confident your nutrient investment will still be available when crops need it?
Spring will be here before you know it and soon it will be time to be out in the fields once again. And if you’re a western Canadian grower applying anhydrous ammonia, timing is everything since spring weather can be somewhat unpredictable.
It’s no secret: the unpredictability of input costs has growers searching for more opportunities to cut spending—including on nitrogen stabilizers.
While many uncertainties are top of mind for growers, weather always seems to remain one of the primary areas of concern as with the arrival of spring comes less than ideal soil conditions—cool, dry or extremely wet.
As a grower, you may not be able to control what you aren’t expecting, but you are capable of protecting your nitrogen investment from denitrification losses.
