Get tips on how to effectively manage your nitrogen (N) fertilizer investment.
Timing Nitrogen Applications to Corn
Applying N at multiple times, including the time of maximum crop uptake, can spread the risk of N loss and crop deficiency, improve profitability by reducing N rates, and benefit the environment.
Common Nitrogen Fertilizers and Stabilizers for Corn Production
The risk of N loss depends on field and climate conditions, type of fertilizer, and whether a stabilizer is used. Learn more about anhydrous ammonia, urea, and urea-ammonium nitrate solutions, and N stabilizers that may help prevent N losses when using these fertilizers.
Controlled-Release Nitrogen Fertilizers
Controlled-release N fertilizers can reduce N losses by delaying the initial release of N and providing it gradually to better match its availability with crop uptake needs.
