Nitrogen management is critical for growing healthy corn and farmers are sensitive to their role in helping build a more sustainable world.
Growers can ensure nitrogen stability and reduce nitrate loss into groundwater by monitoring the temperature and using a nitrogen stabilizer.
Last year, excessive rainfall that swept through the Midwest, leaving puddles in cornfields and customers concerned about spring-applied nitrogen loss. Using a nitrogen stabilizer, such as Instinct® II or N-Serve®, will help prevent nitrate leaching during rainy seasons and keep nitrogen in the root zone, where corn needs it most.
A few months ago at our LIFT Summit, we got a chance to sit down with Jason Moulin from Dow AgroSciences and talk about managing nitrogen. He explains how managing nitrogen in crop production helps growers protect their investments.
Nitrogen can be lost through leaching and denitrification. Fortunately, there are ways growers can prevent nitrogen loss through the responsible application of a nitrification inhibitor.
