As the wheat acres throughout Kentucky and Tennessee begin to receive the early application of UAN, it’s important to understand the importance of protecting a farmer's investment by adding a nitrogen stabilizer.
Now, you can never completely eliminate losing some of your nitrogen through volatilization, denitrification, immobilization, or leaching. However, you can drastically reduce the likelihood of it happening by the use of additives. Although Agrotain may be the most commonly known one, there are many other excellent options, but too many to mention in this post.
In a year where everyone is crunching their calculators, I believe that nitrogen management is one of the most important dollars that we could spend. Would you purchase a bag of seed corn, only to pour 30% of it on the ground without putting it in the planter? Of course not. Why should fertilizer be treated any different?
