Nutrien: Applying nitrogen fertilizer in fall is riskier than in spring

Agronomists at Nutrien warn applying nitrogen fertilizer in the fall is riskier than in spring time.

They say any nitrogen applied in the fall tends to sit in the soil for much longer and could wash away before a crop is even planted. They warn farmers applying anhydrous this fall should wait until the soil is below 50 degrees.
