Most corn producers have planned their spring nitrogen program for 2015, and many have already started to implement their program.
Such plans might include fall ammonia application, early spring application of ammonia or another form of nitrogen, or plans to apply all of the nitrogen at or after planting, says a University of Illinois crop scientist.
I am somewhat surprised at the rather laid back attitude toward the nitrogen plant being planned northwest of Grand Forks, N.D. A recent article regarding rail transport of the product through Grand Forks concentrated more on inconveniences additional trains could cause, and not the inherent dangers.
FARGO, N.D. — Steve and Scott O’Neill don’t promise area corn farmers quick or easy answers. But producers who “push the boundaries of production and challenge their mindsets” will be rewarded with much-higher yields than their less-flexible neighbors, Steve O’Neill said.
Nitrogen is an essential plant nutrient that is applied to our crops in greater quantity than any other fertilizer. With the current cost of nitrogen fertilizer, it is more important then ever that producers use care and caution, and yet get the best bang for their nitrogen buck.
