The weather may be unpredictable. But you can still protect your nitrogen investment.

Nitrogen loss can be a serious problem impacting yield potential and return on investment. Depending on the soil type, nitrogen fertilizer is susceptible to losing more than 50% of its nitrogen through ammonia volatilization, denitrification and nitrate leaching.
Applying livestock manure to crops is a cost-efficient way to fertilize. Unfortunately, when manure remains untreated, nitrogen content can be susceptible to loss through volatilization, leaching and denitrification. And when nitrogen isn’t available for crops, yield can be impacted.
According to the National Weather Service Climate Prediction Center, growers across the U.S. may start noticing the impacts of El Niño as we progress into the fall and winter seasons.
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.

Growers should soon be planning their winter top-dress applications. While crop progress and weather conditions vary, the 4Rs of fertilizer application pertain across the wheat belt.
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.
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.
UAN is a combination of urea, ammonium nitrate and water that forms to combine this liquid fertilizer.

氮肥流失可能成为影响产量潜力和投资回报的严重问题。根据土壤类型的不同, 氮肥很容易通过氨挥发、反硝化作用以及氮淋失而损失超过 50% 的氮。
There is resurgence in interest on topdressing nitrogen for a variety of reasons. First, the perception is that top-dressing nitrogen fertilizer during the growing season offers potential benefits in cost and efficiency. Second, recent weather patterns have forced many farmers to either skip or miss the opportunity for fertilizer application prior to or at seeding time. Finally, protein premiums for spring wheat can be enticing at times
