Managing and especially fall applied nitrogen is important for optimal nutrient availability, crop , and ultimately yield. Nitrogen is one of the three primary nutrients needed for crop production and is a mobile nutrient in the soil. Losses of nitrogen can lead to less return on investment on dollars spent and have environmental consequences. Applications of nitrogen in the fall may be favorable to some farm operations to spread out workload and reduce the potential for spring field compaction. Some factors to consider before applying nitrogen in the fall are soil temperatures, forecast air temperatures, and using a nitrogen stabilization product.
