Splitting fertilizer applications through side-dressing, can help producers achieve stronger yields, while remaining environmentally responsible and cost conscious. Side-dress applications supply nitrogen directly to crop roots. This minimizes potential for lost fertilizer due to run-off or leaching, while improving fertilizer uptake.
