Non-Uniform Nitrogen Application a Concern

Jim Andrew says corn prices may be so low that the cost of applying extra nitrogen may not be covered by the additional yields. As a result, the Jefferson, Iowa, no-tiller says nitrate tests are critical to avoid runoff into the nation’s water supplies and to protect the environment while earning the best possible returns.

Andrew urges growers to check fertilizer hoses and application units to catch serious problems before they impact corn stands.

Try Earlier Planting with No-Tilled Soybeans

For attendees interested in earlier soybean planting dates, Dave Savage says he hasn’t seen any major yield swings or significant visual differences in plant health.

The Farley, Iowa, no-tiller says growers in his area should target April for best yields, be prepared for early weed control concerns, be ready to no-till when conditions are right, consider GMO seed and proceed with caution.
