PFR Anhydrous Ammonia Studies

Agronomy Update

Published on Wednesday, April 7, 2021

Chris Grimm, Practical Farm Research (PFR®) Location Lead, discusses anhydrous ammonia studies PFR is testing this year:

  • Nitrogen Timing Study – Fall vs. Spring Anhydrous Ammonia (*new for 2021)
  • Nitrogen Placement Study – Anhydrous Ammonia
  • Nitrogen Depth and Timing Study – Anhydrous Ammonia
  • Nitrogen Systems Study

Pat Holloway, Beck’s Hybrids Field Sales Agronomist, highlights agronomic considerations when making anhydrous ammonia applications:

  • Make sure soil conditions are fit for application – not too wet.
  • Wait at least a week (if possible) after anhydrous has been applied to the soil to plant the crops.
  • The deeper the nitrogen is knifed in, the better the crop safety (reduced risk of crop injury).

Stay tuned, this fall, for the yield results on these studies in the 2021 PFR Book.
