In-furrow fertilizers for wheat

Wheat is considered a highly responsive crop to band-applied fertilizers, particularly phosphorus. Wheat plants typically show a significant increase in fall tillers and better root development with the use of starter fertilizer.

Considerations for fall applications of anhydrous ammonia

For fall applications of anhydrous ammonia there are a number of factors to consider including soil temperature, soil texture, and soil moisture. This time of year, it is important to not apply anhydrous while soil temperatures are above a certain threshold. Learn more in this article.

Fall fertilization of brome pastures

Fall is a good time to plan on fertilizing cool-season perennial grasses such as smooth brome. Brome requires annual fertilization for optimum production. Fertilizer should be applied by broadcasting in the fall or before spring growth begins. This article covers fertilizer application timing and rates for optimum brome production.

Considerations for fall applications of anhydrous ammonia

Soils across Kansas are still running above 50F at the 4-inch depth. It is best to delay anhydrous ammonia applications until soil temperatures drop below this threshold. By delaying application until cold weather, over-winter losses of the applied nitrogen can be minimized. Fall applications should be avoided on sandy soils prone to leaching.
