Protecting a Nitrogen Investment in Saturated Soils
Article Categories: Blog Icon BLOG, US
Record-setting rainfalls in late 2018 left many growers in the U.S., specifically the southern states and the Northeast, with saturated fields and the need for a new nitrogen game plan.

As growers begin to navigate their spring nitrogen applications, it’s important to remember that ground with full moisture profiles going into the growing season can lead to higher leaching and denitrification losses, especially if additional moisture occurs. To protect against losses via leaching and denitrification, whether that nitrogen source be anhydrous ammonia, UAN, or urea, growers should utilize a nitrification inhibitor. 

CENTURO® nitrogen stabilizer is designed to protect a grower’s anhydrous or UAN applications from leaching and denitrification losses, and a multi-state and year study showed that spring applications of anhydrous with CENTURO can benefit as much from a nitrification inhibitor as fall applications.

If timing becomes an issue as it gets closer to planting, and a grower chooses to utilize urea, solutions such as SUPERU® fertilizer is made to protect against all three forms of nitrogen loss, while providing operational efficiencies to maximize time during the season.

Help your growers draft their nitrogen game plan for the spring with KAS solutions that guard against nitrogen loss.

With persistent wet weather patterns across the U.S. causing logistical strain and delay of many growers getting into their fields, some are already making the switch from anhydrous ammonia to other nitrogen sources. This means now is the time to discuss nitrogen source alternatives and nitrogen protection options with your growers.
