PFR Report: ANHYDROUS AMMONIA

Author: Chris Grimm

Nitrogen is one of the 16 essential elements required for plant growth. The most common nitrogen fertilizer forms include anhydrous ammonia (NH3), urea, and urea-ammonium nitrate (UAN) solutions. Anhydrous contains 82% nitrogen, the highest amount of any nitrogen fertilizer. Once applied in the soil, anhydrous ammonia converts to the ammonium form (NH4+). Ammonium ions are very stable in the soil. Over time, ammonium converts to nitrate (NO3), which is the form of nitrogen most used by plants.

PFR Report: Pre-Emergent Herbicide Application Timing

Author: Joe Bolte

The foundation of a successful herbicide program starts with the Power in the PRE™. A successful pre-emerge herbicide can help reduce the amount of weed pressure in the POST-emergence application. Many POST-emergence applications are sprayed in the earlier vegetative stages. However, data shows by delaying weed removal until the POST trip, a significant yield reduction can occur. This highlights the negative impact of early weed competition and showcases the Power in the PRE.
