Your farm has several options to consider utilizing this year:
- Traditional sidedress 28%, perhaps at knee high corn
- High clearance 28% application at V6 to V8 leaf stage with your own self-propelled applicator using drag hoses, Y-drops or streamer nozzles, or…
Introducing Thompsons NEW high-clearance RoGator for urea application!
Apply in-crop urea at V6 to V8 leaf stage with a self-propelled custom applicator airflow RoGator, owned and operated by Thompsons Limited.
If you consider the following chart, showing the uptake of nitrogen throughout the corn growing season, a significant portion of the nitrogen requirement occurs from tasseling to physiological maturity (black layer).
An in-season, planned, application of nitrogen allows you to more precisely meet the nitrogen requirements of your corn crop. In addition, we now have the ability to test for soil nitrogen, in field!
New for 2016
We now have the ability to test for soil nitrogen, right in the field!
Using Thompsons N-Gauge, our 360 SoilScan unit, we will have nitrate results in minutes.
To make the most out of an in-crop application of 28% or urea, it is strongly recommended that the nitrogen be treated with an inhibitor (Agrotain) that protects the nitrogen from ammonia volatilization, denitrification and nitrate leaching.
