Managing Risk with Split-Applications | Technical Bulletin 079
Posted on May 25, 2017
There are many ways nitrogen can be applied, but when it comes to sustainability and risk management growers are turning to slow-release nitrogen to “spoon feed” their crop.
When growers split nitrogen applications, they are able to manage risk before critical growth stages. Nitrogen undergoes volatilization and denitrification throughout the growing season leading to nitrogen losses. By utilizing a PureGrade® fertilizer with slow release nitrogen and other valuable nutrients, growers will reduce environmental losses, improve efficiency, and maximize yields.
Slow release nitrogen products in the PureGrade line are available in different release forms to best fit each crop’s nitrogen need. These products can be soil or foliar applied to all crop types to correct nitrogen deficiencies and extend the nitrogen release period for improved efficiency.
OverPass® CF (Corn Foliar) and OverPass® SF (Soybean Foliar) are foliar fertilizers containing slow release nitrogen and other essential nutrients for plant growth and development. The use of slow release nitrogen extends absorption and minimizes any leaf interaction from the application of nitrogen, setting the plant up for higher yields.
Super 72 can be soil or foliar applied to correct nitrogen deficiencies and extend the release period. Super 72 increases crop safety, nitrogen absorption, translocation, and remobilization.
