Wet, saturated soils and variable environmental conditions certainly complicate issues associated with nitrogen fertilization of wheat fields in the Mid-South.
Some wheat has begun to green up, so this is a good time to start planning for topdressing nitrogen (N) on the winter wheat crop.
Each year producers ask the question when is the best time to apply N to wheat? Also, is it ok to apply N on frozen ground?

The wheat markets also rebounded from early Friday lows. Events on the Black Sea are rather obviously causing concerns about the availability of grain supplies from that region. Less than ideal conditions in several regions, particularly the U.S. southern Plains, probably spurred early buying as well. The wheat markets also suffered a midmorning bout of aggressive profit-taking, but rebounded from those lows and closed strongly. May CBOT wheat futures bounced 8.0 cents to $6.54/bushel in late Friday action, while May KCBT wheat futures vaulted 8.0 cents to $7.2125, and May MWE futures ran up 9.75 at $7.05.
