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.
The hard fact is that there are things on your operation that are out of your control. Spring rains and soil temperature both adversely impact your crop’s overall yield potential. But another fact is just as powerful – research has proven that the technology built into nitrification inhibitors can protect your UAN investment and your overall profitability.
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.
As fall approaches, many growers across the Great Plains will be taking to the field to start late summer and early fall nitrogen applications on wheat acres.
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.
DCD or dicyandiamide is the active ingredient found in many fertilizers and additives marketed for their nitrification inhibition properties.
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.

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. Crop science experts and others in the agriculture industry will discuss topics ranging from nitrogen loss and soil health to ways growers can increase operational efficiencies.
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.
