How Can I Place My ‘N’ and ‘P’ Better in a No-Till System? - John Fulton - NNTC 2016 Presentation - MP3 Download

$19.95

With environmental policies influencing the timing and placement of fertilizers, it’s important to improve the application toolbox without sacrificing farm profitability.

In this presentation, John Fulton discusses opportunities for timing and placement of nitrogen and phosphorus, and how new technology can help enhance delivery. The Ohio State ag engineer also discusses environmental risks, agronomic response and application field capacity, as well as tips to consider for success.
