With unprecedented rainfall in the 2019 spring, many growers across the country faced the challenge of nitrogen loss due to leaching and denitrification. Learn how SUPERU helped beat the odds.
To produce higher yields, growers need to be resourceful. And as you look for sustainable options to best manage nutrients, preventing nitrogen loss is a top concern. To do that, you have to understand the three types of nitrogen loss and the tools you have to prevent it.
As the world’s population increases, one of the critical concerns of food production is the shrinking number of farming acres.
Nitrogen is one of the most critical nutrients for a corn crop and plays a large role in plant growth, development and yield potential. Depending on several environmental factors, nitrogen can be lost to from the rooting zone of the crop which can lead to a nitrogen deficiency.
Summer applications of nitrogen fertilizer on pastures can boost production, but there are risks of nitrogen loss.
Each year, new agronomic solutions are introduced for growers to consider using to help them better their operation. The best of those allow growers to use fewer resources, potentially saving them money in the long run and promoting a more sustainable future.
Thanks to agronomic research being conducted around the world, advances are being made each day to help growers produce more with fewer resources. And that work not only helps to feed people across the globe, it also creates value for society as a whole.
As you start to plan for next year, you may be looking for expenses to cut from your overall budget. We're here to tell you why the investment in nitrogen stabilizers can give your operation an edge.
As you plan for the next growing season, fluctuating commodity prices may have you looking at your expenses. In order to manage tighter margins, you could even be tempted to cut input costs but it may end up hurting your bottom line.
This episode features Kate Koehler, the director of product management and communications for Koch Agronomic Services, and Edwin Suarez, technical agronomist with Koch Agronomic Services. They discuss the information growers need to make their input plan for next season, the benefits of fall applications and how the decision to use a stabilizer can help growers achieve a higher return on their nitrogen investment.
Fall fertilizer decisions can be one of the most important decisions a grower can make to help boost crop performance and help provide efficiencies when it comes to spring workload.
Was your crop given the right source at the right rate, at the right time and in the right place? Learn best management practices from the 4R Nutrient Stewardship initiative.
With several regions across the U.S. receiving little precipitation over the last few months, many growers may be questioning how the lack of rain may impact their fall anhydrous ammonia (NH3) applications.
Each year, you put a lot of thought into your operation. Preparing your fields, planning what seed to plant and cultivating your crops with the hopes of getting the most yield potential. But dry conditions during the growing season can put a crimp in those plans.
With the recent trends of fertilizer and grain pricing, growers making spring nitrogen plans may choose to change their nitrogen needs and look at other inputs such as nitrogen stabilizers to optimize their overall profitability.
If you are applying UAN or anhydrous ammonia — spring, fall or split applications alike — all nitrogen sources are subject to leaching after being nitrified to the nitrate form.
Because variables such as weather and soil type can all contribute to the loss of nitrogen, the process of keeping it available to nourish crops becomes complicated quickly.
While soil CEC is a critical component for soil, there are common misconceptions when it comes to its relationship with nutrients. To understand the relationship between soil CEC and nutrients, we need to understand the chemistry behind the soil and the nutrients found or applied to the soil.
For more than a decade, Justin Speth has worked in agriculture retail. He’s been hands-on with products since he started his career. During much of that time, he has faced challenges with the nitrogen stabilizer products he was using on anhydrous ammonia and urea ammonium nitrate (UAN).
The Field Notes podcast series from Koch Agronomic Services (Koch) will break down the science and technology behind agronomy to help growers do more with less.
As input costs climb to historic levels, growers around the globe are being forced to take a critical look at their nitrogen management strategies.
James Leonard grew up on a row crop farm with livestock. As far back as he can remember, he loved agriculture.
Getting the most out of your input investment is important to every grower. In east central Iowa, Jamie Vesely is someone growers lean on for input advice.
If you’ve been around agriculture for more than a few days, then you know weather can be a fickle friend and this year may be setting up to be no different.
Many growers across the U.S. haven’t turned a wheel this spring. Spring rains, and in certain parts of the country cold conditions with snowfall and cool soils, have delayed field work this season.
