Where’s My Nitrogen? How To Make A “Nitrogen Map”

Many growers apply nitrogen in the fall to take advantage of the wide application window. But there are risks with fall application. Applying seven months prior to planting leaves nitrogen vulnerable to loss from rain events and warm winters. Because nitrates easily move in the soil profile, it is important… Read More

Where is My Nitrogen? The Positives and Negatives of Anhydrous

Nitrogen moves in the soil profile because of environmental factors – precipitation, temperature, etc. – but it’s important to understand the chemical process happening behind that movement in order to better control it. Let’s start by reviewing the transformation of one form, Anhydrous Ammonia. It enters the soil ammonia (NH3)…. Read More

TRIAL DATA: Placement Boosts Nitrogen Uptake And Yield

A corn plant takes up most of its nitrogen from a 7-inch radius. Improving placement by banding nitrogen fertilizer along the base of the plant leads to improve uptake. In 2016, 360 Yield Center partnered with the University of Illinois using a tracer ion in a nitrogen solution called 15N… Read More
