Going to put 35 gal per acre beside thre row. How far to the side and how deep should it be placed? If that is to much to safely use , how much can i place beside the row. S.L. Brady

I am 2nd year farmer and I am planning on doing the same this for the upcoming crop year. How far down and to the side did you end up placing the N. Im also planning on adding 10 lbs of Sulfer and a N-serve type product to reduce nitrogen loss. I've been told that split applications are better, but I feel the ease of one trip across the field to be much more beneficial given Im planting on the contour. Input from anyone would appreciated.

Thanks for the advice. How did this same trip application work for you this past year? Anything you would do different?

I have customers that have put from 25 gals to 40 gals of 28% on with the planter at a distance of 3.5 to 4 inches from the row for more than 15 years without damage. We try to get it into the ground around 4 inches

You should check to see what amount will give you the best response on your farm . We find around 30 gals placed this way is a good boost along with the savings over broadcast.

Thanks again, this is all great info and confirms my ambition to put N down at planting time.

Wish a Merry Christmas to everyone.

Andy, Email me and I'll send you pics of my row unit mounted twin opener fert. application system. It places the fert. 3" from the seed trench-on both sides of the seed trench and about 2-2.5" deep. jeff Harmseed@prairieinet.net
