Farmers have a keen eye for math when it comes to the inputs and investments they make in their operation. If they’re going to spend $10 on an investment, they want to make sure there’s a yield advantage that’s going to come along with it. It’s a long term plan – it’s not one and done.
Ag PhD radio show hosts, Brian and Darin Hefty, discussed that very subject, as well as nitrogen loss, overuse and application, along with specifying farmers who sidedress at the right time and have the right balance of nutrients for that soil type will see the biggest increase in yield and ROI.
Joining the Hefty’s discussion, Darin Lickfeldt, Ph.D., CCA, a technical development manager for Verdesian Life Sciences, speaks about nitrogen and the process that follows its uptake following sidedress.
