Nitrogen is an integral nutrient when it comes to plant health. Crops find it both in the soil and through fertilizers applied in early spring. Unfortunately, nitrogen is susceptible to loss via ammonia volatilization, nitrate leeching and denitrification. Rainfall, soil types and fertilizer application play a roll in how much of your nitrogen investment gets put to use.
What you’ll learn:
• Where plants find nitrogen most readily
• Fertilizer options
• The role of nitrogen stabilizers when used with fertilizers
