Time to start considering fall fertilizer

While it is only August, many producers are already setting plans for fall fertilizer applications.

Nelson Neale, the head of global research for CHS told Brownfield news, says that it is anyone’s guess what fertilizer prices will do in the coming months.

With urea up more than 180 percent since 2019, agronomists suggest making sure fertilizer is not being spread where it is not needed and that it is important to consider how much yield was removed at the last harvest.

A crop advisor can also help producers create a nutrient management plan for the coming year to help plan for the unexpected.
