Dry fertilizers can be safely and quickly applied in the fall. Some tillage will help ensure nutrients are placed below the soil surface. This will help reduce stratification and lower the concentration of dissolved P in the runoff water.
The Fertilizer Institute (TFI) kicked off the 2016 4R Advocate Awards Program with a call for entries from retailers wishing to highlight exceptional nutrient stewardship practices of their farmer customers.
Wilbur-Ellis Company, a user and supplier of precision agriculture technology and a large-scale marketer and distributor of plant protection, seed and nutritional products, has constructed and opened a 22,000 ton dry fertilizer storage and blending facility in Moses Lake, Washington, a multi-million dollar record investment for the company to serve the agricultural community.
NASDA joined the Fertilizer Institute, Agricultural Retailers Association, National Corn Growers Association, American Farm Bureau Federation, National Council of Farmer Cooperatives and National Grain and Feed Association urging OSHA to withdraw a recent memorandum that would dramatically affect anhydrous ammonia dealers.
A startup fertilizer company can proceed with claims that a Koch brothers-owned competitor is trying to drive it out of business through litigation based on a questionable patent, a North Carolina federal judge has ruled.
Trash, stover, residue – regardless of the term, postharvest debris is increasing and causing more frustration and detriment to overall soil and plant health. Excess stover blocks surface soil, damages equipment and, worse yet, withholds valuable crop nutrients.
It is not too early to start making plans for the next growing season. For some farmers, nitrogen (N) application in the fall is one of the many important decisions to make. Nitrogen is not only a large input in most corn farming operations, but it also represents an important input in terms of the environment.
Bion Environmental Technologies, Inc., a provider of advanced livestock waste treatment technology, announced that it has filed a new patent application for a process that recovers a nitrogen-rich, natural, non-synthetic fertilizer product from a livestock waste stream.
