Maximize the benefits of topdress fertilizer applications to winter canola by following the proper guidelines. Producers should make topdress applications with consideration for the environmental conditions, nutrients needed, and application method. Learn more about this common practice from K-State's canola breeder, Mike Stamm.
Now is good time for wheat producers to start planning for topdress nitrogen applications, especially for wheat fields that emerged last fall. Learn about the key elements that need to be considered when deciding on the exact fertilizer program.
In recent years, sulfur deficiency in wheat has become common in many areas of Kansas, particularly in no-till wheat. Learn more about this nutrient deficiency and how to manage it in this article from our soil fertility specialist, Dr. Ruiz Diaz.
Chloride is a very mobile nutrient in soils, especially those prone to leaching. Topdressing is a good application method for wheat. Recommendations for this management option are discussed in this article.
The current status of the Kansas wheat crop is very variable. Regardless of the crop condition, now is a good time to start planning for topdress nitrogen applications. Several key elements need to be considered. Learn about those factors in this article.
To maximize the yield potential of winter canola, producers should topdress with nitrogen, sulfur, and possibly boron in the winter. Producers should make topdress applications with consideration for environmental conditions, nutrients needed, and application method.
In recent years, sulfur deficiency in wheat has become common in many areas of Kansas, particularly in no-till wheat where cooler soil temperatures can slow S mineralization in the soil. Learn how to manage this nutrient deficiency in wheat in this article.
Chloride is a highly mobile nutrient in soils and topdressing is typically a good time for application in soils prone to leaching. One of the main benefits from adequate chloride is overall disease resistance in wheat.
Regardless of the crop conditions, wheat producers should start planning for any topdress nitrogen applications. However, differing yield potentials across regions should be taken into consideration when managing the nitrogen fertilizer rate. This article will discuss some of the issues to consider when making topdressing decisions.
